1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Spread 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Layer with 3 lasagna noodles, Mix the Ricotta and the italian seasoning together. Layer the cheese (all 3 types), meat, and sauce on top of the lasagna noodles. Continue layering on top of noodles until all of the noodle are gone. Sprinkle the Italian and mozzarella cheese on top of the lasagna.

Yes, you are correct about the limited Italian Mom always used Riccotta Cheese with eggs,  parsley, some parma cheese or romano cheese, some salt and a tablespoon of sugar. Also, don't forget to put Mozzeralla cheese on top of each layer.  Spray aluminum foil with Pam to prevent sticking to the cheese when baking...this is what I do too, and don't forget to make your own Italian sauce...the jarred type might do in a pinch...but not for me...ha ha
