Liz's easy lasagna

Okay, I haven't posted in a while. I got inspired by a nice lady in the grocery who recommended these noodles. I was a little skeptical, but they turned out great! No boiling and the texture was perfect. Thank you random lady in the grocery!

Barilla lasagna noodles (no boiling variety)
1 lb ground beef
1 onion
1 green pepper
2 cloves garlic
16 oz ricotta cheese
2 cups mozz cheese
1 cup parm cheese
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 egg
1 26 oz jar of pasta sauce
1 cup water

Brown beef with pepper, onion, and garlic. Drain beef and add sauce and water. Bring to boil and simmer. Mix ricotta cheese, 1 cup of mozz cheese, 1/2 cup of parm cheese, egg and parsly.
Pre-heat oven to 375. In 9 by 13: layer cup of meat sauce, 3-4 UNCOOKED noodles and 1/3 of ricotta cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining mozz cheese and parm cheese. Bake covered for 50-60 minutes.
