This surprisingly easy Italian dish will please almost anyone.  With the right amount of spices and the perfect blend of cheeses, it is sure to be a success.  Experiment with spices and garlic to make the perfect tomato sauce.  Molto delizioso!

15 oz. ricotta cheese
10 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese
2 lbs. ground beef (can also use ground beef and Italian sausage)
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt, to taste

While pasta is cooking, brown beef/sausage and drain. 
If desired, add minced garlic and salt to spaghetti sauce to taste.
Add spaghetti sauce to beef mixture.  
In bowl, combine eggs, ricotta cheese, 1-1/2 c. Mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.  
Drain pasta and add to cheese mixture and toss to coat.  
Spoon 1/3 of meat sauce into 13x9x2 pan.
