Preparation

Step 1

Brown meat in large skillet. Drain off excess fat. Add garlic, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and wine. Simmer 3-5 minutes. Stir in spaghetti sauce and tomato paste. Cook, stirring occasionally 10-15 minutes.
Drop lasagna, singly, into 6 quarts boiling water to which 2 tablespoons salt have been added. Boil for 5 minutes over medium heat. Stir with wooden spoon. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Combine eggs, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and pepper. Blend well.
In a greased 13" x 9" x 2" pan, arrange a layer of lasagna. Spread with a layer of ricotta cheese mixture, a layer of meat sauce and a layer of sliced mozzarella. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Save enough of the sauce to pour over top. Finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
Back in 350°F oven for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
