Ingredients

1-1/2 lb (750g) hot Italian sausage, removed from casing
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup (175 mL) diced red pepper
3/4 cup (175 mL) diced green pepper
1 jar (750 mL) spaghetti sauce
1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves
1/3 cup (75 mL) sliced pitted black olives
9 lasagna noodles
1 tub (475g) Tre Stelle Ricotta Cheese
1/3 cup (75 mL) Tre Stelle Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped parsley
1 egg
1 pkg (400g) Tre Stelle Mozzarella Cheese
2 tbsp (25 mL) Tre Stelle Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Directions

In a nonstick skillet brown sausage, stirring to break up pieces. Add vegetables and continue cooking until sausage is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Drain. Stir in sauce and oregano. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in olives. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling water, cook lasagna noodles just until tender; drain. Combine Tre Stelle Ricotta, Parmesan, parsley, and egg; stir to blend evenly. Slice 2/3 of Tre Stelle Mozzarella and coarsely shred the remainder. Generously butter a 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking dish and place a single layer of cooked lasagna noodles in the bottom. Spread with 1/2 the meat sauce, 1/2 Ricotta mixture, and 1/2 the sliced Mozzarella. Cover with a layer of noodles, the remaining Ricotta and the remaining sliced Mozzarella. Top with the remaining noodles and the remaining meat sauce. Sprinkle with the shredded Mozzarella, and if desired, additional Parmesan. Cover with lightly greased foil and bake at 350ºF (180ºC) for 50-60 minutes or until heated through. Uncover and continue cooking 5-10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
