2.  Cook and stir sausage in large skillet over med-high heat 8-10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.  Drain and return to skillet.  Stir in sauce, Italian seasoning, salt and cooked pasta.  Layer half of pasta mixture in a greased 13x9 in. baking dish.


3.  Mix ricotta and 1 c. of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.  Spread over pasta.  Top with remaining pasta and mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle with parsley.
