Makes 16 cups of sauce

Assemble Lasagna: I make 4 -5 layers and adjust portioning of cheese, reserving a larger portion of mozzarella for the top.

put 2 cups of sauce in bottom of lasagna pan, layer noodles to cover, sprinkle with 1/4 of parmesean and romano cheese, put on 1/3 of ricotta cheese, top with 1/4 of mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers using 3-4 cups of sauce - save 1 cup of sauce for the top. End with a layer of noodles and the parmesean and romano cheese then top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake 40-50 minutes till cheese is golden.

Let rest 15 minutes before cutting.
