Prep Time: 25-30 minutes
Bake Time: 35-40 minutes

1-1/2 (24-ounce) jars *Mom's Special Marinara
12 wide lasagna noodles, cooked al dente, drained well and laid out flat on a platter
1-1/2 pounds link-style Italian sausage, cooked, drained and sliced about 1/4-inch thick
1 pound ricotta salata cheese, crumbled
1 pound mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten until frothy
Additional grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease bottom and side of a 9" x 13" baking dish. Pour a thin layer of the Mom's Special Marinara into the bottom of the dish. Overlap four of the lasagna noodles lengthwise in the dish. Scatter half of the sliced Italian sausage over the noodles. Combine the three cheeses in a bowl and toss to blend well. Stir the beaten egg into the cheese mixture. Scatter half of the cheese over the sausage slices. Pour another layer of the spaghetti sauce over the cheese. Layer another four noodles and repeat with the remaining sausage and cheese layers. Pour another glaze of the sauce over the cheese. Place the final four noodles on top and pour the remaining sauce over the lasagna. Scatter a generous portion of grated Parmesan on top. Bake in preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes, or until cheese has melted and the dish is bubbly hot and lightly browned. Cut into desired portion sizes and serve hot. Serves 6 - 8.
