"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

One 15-ounce container plus 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 and 1/2 cups (packed) grated mozzarella cheese (about 6 ounces)

Nonstick olive oil spray 

For the Sauce:
Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat.

Add crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes with juices.

Bring sauce to boil.

Reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors.

Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Chill until cold, then cover and keep chilled.)

For the Filling:
Using on/off turns, chop fresh basil leaves finely in processor.

Add ricotta, mozzarella, Parmigiano cheese, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Using on/off turns, process filling until just blended and texture is still chunky.

For the Lasagna:
Preheat oven to 375F.

Spread 1 and 1/4 cups sauce in 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish.

Arrange 3 noodles on sauce.

Drop 1 and 1/2 cups filling over noodles, then spread evenly to cover.

Sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmigiano cheese.

Repeat layering of sauce, noodles, filling and cheeses 2 more times.

Top with remaining 3 noodles.

Spoon remaining sauce atop noodles.

Sprinkle with remaining cheeses.

Spray large piece of foil with nonstick olive oil spray.

Cover lasagna with foil, sprayed side down.

Bake lasagna 40 minutes.

Carefully uncover. Increase oven temperature to 400F.
