1 pound of ricotta cheese
1 egg

  1. Brown ground meat and chopped onion together in a skillet. Add garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together all of the ricotta cheese, 1 egg, and fresh chopped parsley (about 1/2 cup).
  3. Layer in baking pan as follows --
  4. enough of the spaghetti sauce just to cover bottom of pan,
  5. half of the noodles (uncooked),
  6. all of the ricotta mixture,
  7. all of the meat mixture,
  8. half of the mozzarella cheese,
  9. half of the parmesan cheese,

Cover the pan completely with aluminum foil and turn down the edges of the foil to seal. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Remove foil and continue baking for about 15 minutes (or until the cheese begins to brown on top). Remove pan from the oven and let it cool for about 15 more minutes before serving.
