Yield: Serves 6
Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 45 Minutes



  • 1 lb (500 g) mild or hot Italian Ontario pork sausages, casings removed
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp can (14 oz/398 mL) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (28 oz/798 mL) Italian plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 pkg oven-ready lasagna noodles
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 lb (250 g) ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) grated mozzarella cheese

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a large heavy skillet, heat oil. Add sausage, garlic and onion, stirring to break up meat. Cook about 10 minutes until onions are soft and translucent and sausage is browned. 
  2. Add tomato sauce and tomatoes, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese and egg; mix well. 
  3. To assemble, spread 1/3 of meat sauce in a 9 x 13 inch (3 litre) baking dish. 
  4. Cover with a layer of noodles, half the ricotta mixture, 1/3 of remaining meat sauce and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat the layers, ending with noodles, meat sauce and mozzarella. 
  5. Cover with foil and bake in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven for about 45 minutes, or until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving.
