- In a separate pot, boil water and cook lasagna noodles according to the instructions in the package. Drain the noodles when cooked.
- Spread a layer of the prepped sauce from Step 1 at the bottom of a 9” x 13 “ by 2 “ baking pan. Next, top the meaty sauce with a layer of cooked lasagna noodles, followed by ricotta cheese, mozzarella, and top with Parmesan cheese. Repeat the sequence until all ingredients are stacked together in the pan.

5. Barbecued Pork Ribs
