Next, spread about 2/3 cup of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Top with 1 cup of the bean/sauce mixture, lastly about 1/2 cup of the mozzarella.
Repeat two layers of noodles, ricotta, bean/sauce, and mozzarella.
Then place on the remaining 3 lasagna noodles and pour the remaining bean/sauce mixture over all. Top with remaining mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake at 375F for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
