    medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1

    clove garlic, pressed

  • 1

    can (16oz) whole tomatoes

  • 1

    can (15oz) tomato sauce

  • 2

    tbsp dried parsley flakes

  • 1

    tsp sugar

  • 1

    tsp dried basil leaves

  • 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 9

    uncooked lasagna noodles (about 8 oz)

  • 1

    carton (16oz) ricotta or creamed cottage cheese (about 2 cups)

  • 1/4

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1

    tbsp dried parsley flakes

  • 1 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 1 1/2

    tsp dried oregano leaves

  • 2

    cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 oz)

  • 1/4

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook and stir Italian sausage, onion, and garlic in 10-in skillet until sausage is light brown; drain. Add tomatoes (with liquid), tomato sauce, 2 tbsp parsley, the sugar, basil, and 1/2 tsp salt. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered until mixture is consistency of thick spaghetti sauce, about 1 hour. Cook noodles according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce mixture. Mix ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tbsp parsley, 1 1/2 tsp salt, and the oregano. Layer 1/3 each of the noodles, remaining sauce mixture, mozzarella cheese and ricotta cheese mixture in undressed oblong pan, 13x9x2 in. Repeat 2 times. Spoon reserved sauce mixture onto top; sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Cook uncovered in 350 F oven 45 min. Let stand 15 min before cutting. (Do-ahead tip: After cooking, lasagna can be covered and frozen no longer than 3 weeks. To serve, cook uncovered in 375 F oven until bubbly, about 1 hour.)
