  • Summary

    This recipe makes enough lasagna for five to six people -- including seconds! When this dish comes out of the oven, let it rest for a few minutes to ensure beautiful, clean slices. You can also reheat it the next day for out-of-this-world leftovers. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound lasagna noodles or packaged precooked lasagna noodles
    • coarse salt
    • 5 links sweet Italian sausage, or a mixture of hot and sweet, pierced with a fork
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 pound ricotta cheese
    • 3/4 cup freshly grated pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
    • 5 cups Basic Italian Tomato Sauce, (double the recipe and cook for 30 minutes longer to thicken)
    • 1 pound fresh or prepackaged mozzarella cheese, cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices
    • extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
