12 to 16 lasagna noodles cooked according to package directions
1 lb. mozzarella cheese sliced, divided
Prep time: 40 minutes,
Cook time: at least 2 hours, 15 minutes (mostly unattended)

To prepare sauce, heat oil in a large pot; stir in onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for at least 1 hour (several hours is best). To prepare lasagne, preheat oven to 350F and spray a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cook beef and sausage in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until cooked through, breaking into small pieces with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in 1 cup sauce and set aside. Stir together ricotta, 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 1/2 cup Parmigiano, eggs and salt. Spread 1/2 of meat in bottom of prepared pan and top with a layer of cooked noodles, a layer of mozzarella slices and a layer of ricotta mixture. Add another layer of pasta and cheeses, ending with a third layer of pasta. Spoon remaining meat and 1 cup sauce over the top. Tent with foil and bake for 30 minutes; top with remaining cheeses and cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes more. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with remaining sauce and additional Parmigiano.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
