  1. Prepare the Meat Sauce:
    • In a large skillet or saucepan, cook the ground beef and Italian sausage over medium-high heat until browned and crumbled. Drain excess fat.
    • Add chopped onion and minced garlic to the meat mixture. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent.

  2. Prepare the Ricotta Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, egg, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Assemble the Lasagna:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • In a 9×13-inch baking dish, spread a thin layer of the meat sauce on the bottom.
    • Place 3 cooked lasagna noodles on top of the sauce.
    • Spread half of the ricotta filling evenly over the noodles.
    • Sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese over the ricotta layer.
    • Repeat these layers: meat sauce, noodles, ricotta filling, mozzarella cheese.
    • Top the lasagna with a final layer of meat sauce, remaining mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake and Serve:
    • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
    • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the lasagna is bubbly and the cheese is golden brown.
    • Allow the lasagna to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
