To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Boil 1 16-ounce package of lasagna noodles in lightly salted water until they are cooked al dente. Drain the noodles and lay them flat to cool. Mix 4 cups of ricotta, 1/4 cup of Parmesan, 4 eggs and salt and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil over medium heat and saute three cloves of minced garlic for two minutes, and then stir in 1 32-ounce jar of spaghetti sauce and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Heat this mixture until warm.

Once warm, spread 1/2 cup of this sauce on the bottom of the baking dish, and cover it with a layer of noodles. Cover these noodles with about half of the ricotta and Parmesan cheese filling. Add another layer of noodles, cover them with 1 1/2 cups of sauce, and cover this sauce with the rest of the cheese filling. Cover this with the rest of the noodles and sauce, and sprinkle it with 2 cups of shredded mozzarella. Cover the whole dish with greased foil, and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
