    1 pound  sweet Italian sausage
    ¾ pound  lean ground beef
    ½ cup  minced onion
    2 cloves  garlic, crushed
    1 (28 ounce) can  crushed tomatoes
    2 (6.5 ounce) cans  canned tomato sauce
    2 (6 ounce) cans  tomato paste
    ½ cup  water
    2 tablespoons  white sugar
    4 tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley, divided
    1 ½ teaspoons  dried basil leaves
    1 ½ teaspoons  salt, divided, or to taste
    1 teaspoon  Italian seasoning
    ½ teaspoon  fennel seeds
    ¼ teaspoon  ground black pepper
    12  lasagna noodles
    16 ounces  ricotta cheese
    1  egg
    ¾ pound  mozzarella cheese, sliced
    ¾ cup  grated Parmesan cheese
Directions Gather all your ingredients. Cook sausage, ground beef, onion, and garlic in a Dutch oven over medium heat until well browned. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water. Season with sugar, 2 tablespoons parsley, basil, 1 teaspoon salt, Italian seasoning, fennel seeds, and pepper. Simmer, covered, for about 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles, and rinse with cold water. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg, remaining 2 tablespoons parsley, and ½ teaspoon salt. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). To assemble, spread 1 ½ cups of meat sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange 6 noodles lengthwise over meat sauce. Spread with ½ of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese slices. Spoon 1 ½ cups meat sauce over mozzarella, and sprinkle with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers, and top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil: to prevent sticking, either spray foil with cooking spray or make sure the foil does not touch the cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes. Rest lasagna for 15 minutes before serving.
