Ingredients
  Ground beef 1⁄2 Pound
  Ground pork 1⁄2 Pound
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped parsley 2 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Canned tomato paste 6 Ounce
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Lasagna noodles 1 Pound
  Salted water 5 Quart
  Mozzarella cheese 1 Pound
  Ricotta cheese/Cottage cheese 1⁄2 Pound
  Grated parmesan cheese 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Brown ground meats together with onion, parsley and garlic in olive oil.
When meat has browned, drain off the fat.
Add 2 cups water, tomato paste, salt and pepper.
Simmer slowly 1 1/2 hours.
Boil noodles in salted water until tender.
You will have to stir frequently to prevent noodles from sticking together, or brush noodles with oil before boiling.
Drain, and arrange layers of noodles, meat sauce, mozzarella and ricotta in shallow casserole, with noodles on top.
Sprinkle with grated Parmesan, and bake at 375°F about 35 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
Note: If doubling recipe, make 2 separate casseroles, as it is difficult to cook a larger amount of noodles at 1 time.
