  • Spread 2/3 cup marinara sauce over bottom of 13x9x2-inch baking dish.

  • Spoon 1/3 of sausage mixture over.
  • Repeat 2 more times with noodles, sauce, ricotta, grated cheese, and sausage mixture.
  • Cover with 4 more noodles.
  • Spoon remaining 1 cup sauce over; sprinkle remaining 1 cup grated cheese over.
  • Cover with foil, tenting in center to prevent cheese from touching foil.
  • Bake lasagna 45 minutes; remove foil.
  • Bake until bubbling at edges and cheese is browned, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Let stand 15 minutes.
