This recipe fits into a very large roasting pan (to serve 20+). I usually make it for a party and then eat and freeze leftovers. Even though this takes some cooking time, it really is easy and stores or freezes very well.
Make sauce in a VERY large pot or (2) 5 quart sauce pans. Make the sauce in advance as it tastes better after it sits a day or two in the fridge. Also, this shortens the prep time on the baking day. I also bake it the day before and store it in the fridge. It seems to "set" and not be as soft.
Place 6 cups of sauce (or more depending on pan size) on bottom of very large roasting pan. Then put one layer of noodles, one layer of ricotta spread fairly thin, and finally one layer of grated mozzarella. Repeat this for 3-4 layers. The last (top) ingredient should be lots of sauce. I usually end up with 4 layers. You can stretch this by using more noodles and thinner layers of the other ingredients. Freeze any leftover sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60-90 minutes (depending on size). Turn off heat and let sit for 20 minutes in the oven and then remove. I like to make this the day before a party and then cool it and store it in the fridge. Reheat it in the oven 1 hour prior to serving.
