Jenny's Lasagna

Hello, my friends.  It's been quite a while since I've been in the kitchen cooking from scratch.  Being pregnant is hard work!  The baby is now almost 3 weeks old, the garden is bursting with tomatoes, and I've gotten slowly back in the kitchen. Today, I'm sharing with you, my recipe for lasagna.

I made a small batch of homemade tomato sauce with bell peppers and pork to use up some tomatoes.  I used that for my lasagna sauce this time, but you can use jarred sauce from the store.  I normally use marinara or a tomato-y sauce in a jar, so use what works for you.

1 lb ground beef
2 eggs
1 15oz container part-skim ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (for mixing into filling)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons dried parsley
1 box lasagna noodles (I prefer American  Beauty's Oven-Ready)
1 28oz jar Marinara or Tomato-Garlic pasta sauce, or about 3 cups homemade sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for topping)
