Basic Lasagna Recipie

This recipe is one of my very favorites! It used to come on the back of a lasagna box, but it was.. sniff..removed,and, having searched far and wide(more like 5 minutes on Google!), I  have found the recipe and we are having it for supper!
1 lb. ground beef
32 oz. thick spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 c. water
2 c. (15 oz. container) Ricotta or sm. curd cottage cheese
3 c. (12 oz.) shredded Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
8 oz. lasagna, uncooked

Brown beef in 3 quart saucepan; drain off excess fat. Add sauce and water; simmer about 10 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients, except lasagna, for filling. Pour about 1 cup sauce on bottom of 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Layer 3 pieces of uncooked lasagna over sauce; cover with about 1 1/2 cups sauce. Spread 1/2 of cheese filling over sauce. Repeat layers of lasagna, sauce, and cheese filling. Top with layer of lasagna and remaining sauce. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. Remove foil; bake about 10 minutes longer. Allow to stand about 10 minutes before cutting for easier handling. 8 to 10 servings. Lasagna will expand to fill empty spaces. Helpful hint added by me: Eat the noodles that broke when no one's looking!
