  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  3. In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef until brown; drain. In small saucepan, heat spaghetti sauce.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together ricotta, Romano, egg, basil and garlic.
  5. Coat the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with a thin layer of spaghetti sauce. Place 3 or 4 noodles, overlapping edges, over sauce. Spread half of ricotta mixture over noodles. Cover ricotta with half of browned beef, half of pepperoni slices, and 1/4 of mozzarella cheese. Repeat sauce, noodle, ricotta, meat and cheese layers. Layer sauce and noodles again, and pour remaining sauce over all, being sure to cover the edges. Top with remaining mozzarella.
  6. Cover pan with foil and pierce foil 3 or 4 times with fork to ventilate. Bake 45 minutes, remove foil, and bake 15 minutes more to brown the top. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Good lasagna Sabra! The pepperoni added a nice spice. I also chopped up fresh parsley and roasted red peppers to add to the ricotta along with mozarella. By the way, just a hint; no need to boil your noodles. Just soak them in a roasting pan filled with warm water for about thirty minutes. The noodles won't tear like they do when either trying to fish them out of the pot or draining them in a colander. This method leaves them just the right consistancy to start building your lasagna. Thanks so much!

This lasagna tasted GREAT! The reason for the three star rating was the ingredient amount and yield amount. In a 9x13 pan, you have about 12 servings, not 6. I used a full 28oz jar of sauce, and it wasn't enough. Make sure you get more than the recipe calls for and that it's not chunky, but smooth. I also used about double the amount of cheese that they called for. This was based on the given directions. With less layers, the stated ingredient amounts might work.

Outstanding...A couple of things though.Definitly use twice the stated amounts of sauce.I also used half saugese and half ground beef and let it simmer and cook with the sauce for an hour.Lastly I usec 3 lbs of ricota instead of 2 and also used no boil noodles....It came out unbelievable....OUTSTANDING

Absolutely wonderful! The best lasagna recipe I have ever come across. People are BEGGING me to make this again! I would recommend making it a day ahead and refrigerating for a day. I also do half ricotta cheese and half cottage cheese. Also adding 1 pound of Italian sausage seals the deal on this recipe! The spices set it and the taste is even more fantastic!

I've never made lasagna before, so I came to trusty allrecipes for help. I used mild ground sausage rather than pepperoni and combined it with the ground beef. Also, I used regular Ragu Flavored with Meat, added red wine, and let it simmer for about an hour before preparing the lasagna. My family loved it! I made Garlic Bread Fantastique (from this site) to go with it, and it was a spectacular meal. I think it's the best lasagna I've ever had!

I made it for the first time today and the entire family loved it! I made a few changes which worked well for us. I first ground the beef,then once drained add all seasonings to the beef and let it cook well. Added the sause and set it on a low simmer for an hour so that the meat sauce had real flavour to it.I used two jars of sauce and tons of garlic and cajun seasonings to give it kick.

Gotta love it!! I used Barilla no boil noddles and italian sausage in place of ground beef. Very hearty and tons of flavor! The pepperoni and sausage together give it a nice zing.

Really great recipe! I had never made lasagna before so I was a little intimidated but it came out great. I added a little more garlic and it wasn't overpowering. I did use 2 jars of sauce as suggested by other reviewers and it was perfect. This turned out fantastic. It was a bit of a mess b/c it ended up slighlty deeper than my pan but a cookie sheet lined with foil in the rack underneath saved my oven. Overall all the dirty pots and pans were worth the effort as it makes a ton of food and we had plenty of leftovers. Thanks for sharing this!
