Homemade Lasagna

Good morning! We're leisurely enjoying our Saturday morning around here :) I can't wait to share this dish with you guys. This is what I served the Bloomin' Garlic Parmesan Bread with, and they went perfect together! I absolutely love making homemade lasagna, I just love layering all of these different ingredients and ending up with one delicious meal. If you've never made a homemade lasagna (I know I know, Stouffer's is pretty good) I urge you to get in the kitchen and have some fun making your own! :o)

Ingredients:
12 Lasagna Noodles, uncooked
Homemade Marinara Sauce, or jarred (I added 1 lb ground beef that I cooked in a skillet to my Homemade Marinara)
24 Ounces Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
1 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
15 Ounce Container Ricotta Cheese
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Directions:
Start out by boiling your lasagna noodles and then once you drain them, lay them out flat on a flat surface so they don't get all bent and stuck together in your colander. In a bowl, mix together the ricotta, eggs, half of the parsley, half of the Parmesan, the salt and the pepper. In your baking dish, spread a thin layer of marinara on the bottom, then a layer of noodles, then spread some of the ricotta over that, then some of the mozzarella and a little of the Parmesan, and keep repeating this process until you have filled your dish and used up all of your noodles, making sure the very last layer is a layer of mozzarella/Parmesan on the top. Cook in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Sprinkle with the remaining chopped parsley.
