Recipe Ingredients for Tomato-Sausage Lasagna

10 oz lasagna noodles
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 lb sweet italian sausage, casing removed
56 oz whole tomatoes, peeled in puree
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
6 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

Recipe Directions for Tomato-Sausage Lasagna

  1. Fill a 9x13 inch baking dish 2/3 of the way full with hot tap water. Add noodles, and arrange them in alternating positions to avoid sticking. Let soak while preparing sauce.

  2. Make sauce: Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add sausage, and cook, stirring and breaking it up, until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and their puree, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon or fingers; bring to a boil. Reduce to a rapid simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 20 minutes. (You should have about 8 cups of sauce). Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Preheat oven to 350F. Drain noodles; transfer to a baking sheet; dry dish with paper towels. Spoon 1 cup sauce in bottom of dish. Fit 4 noodles in dish (crosswise if using short noodles and lengthwise if using long ones), overlapping slightly. Cover with 2 cups of sauce, 2 cups of mozzarella and 1/4 cup of parmesan. Repeat with another layer, then top with remaining noodles, 3 cups sauce, and the rest of the mozzarella and parmesan. Cover dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.

  4. Remove foil and continue baking until bubbly and brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool 20 minutes; cut and serve.
