To assemble, spread 1/3 of meat sauce in a 9 x 13 inch (3 litre) baking dish.
Cover with a layer of noodles, half the ricotta mixture, 13 of remaining meat sauce and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat the layers, ending with noodles, meat sauce and mozzarella.
Cover with foil and bake in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven for about 45 minutes, or until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving.
