Memaw's Lasagna

1 lb Italian ‘Mild’ Sausage
1 lb ground beef
1 pkg Lasagna noodles (I do not use the oven ready noodles. I like to boil them and layer them that way. Seems more traditional)
6 c. Mozzarella cheese
1 can tomato paste
1 Jar Prego – Chunky Garden Pasta Sauce
1/2 c. ketchup (more or less)
1/4 c. sugar (more or less)

1.) Brown the Italian sausage and ground beef together, drain off fat and return to skillet.

2.) To browned meat, add in the pasta sauce, ketchup, tomato paste and sugar; mix well. Simmer for 30 minutes.

3.) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

4.) While the sauce is simmering boil the lasagna noodles according to the package directions. Since you are baking them in the oven, cook the noodles for the least amount of time stated; they will finish cooking in the oven.

5.) Layer a thin coating of sauce in a 9 x 13 pan, layer the lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the pasta sauce and 1/3 of the cheese; repeat layers finishing with the last third of the mozzarella cheese.

6.) Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve with a nice Ceaser Salad and Cheesy Crescent Rolls for a complete dinner.
