  • Add 1/2 red wine to sauce and stir.
  • In a separate bowl, combine 15 oz. ricotta, 2 c. Mozzarella cheese, 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp. minced garlic and stir. It should make about 3 c. of cheese mixture.
  • Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.

  • Next layer 6 lasagna noodles parallel to each other and slightly overlapping to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
  • Add 1 c. of the cheese mixture and spread it across the noodles with fingers or spoon.
