Cook Ground Beef in skillet. Pour off drippings. Add Sauce and tomatoes with liquid to pan. Set aside.
Combine Ricotta cheese, egg, Parmesan and Basil in bowl, mixing well.
Assemble layers in a 9x13 Pan. I use a foil pan when giving away to my "Freezer Friendz".
Start with 2 cups Beef Mixture. Top with 3 Lasagna noodles. Pour Ricotta Cheese Mixture on top of noodles and sprinkle with 1 cup Mozzarella. Then add 2 cups of Beef Mixture and top with 3 Lasagna noodles. Pour the rest of the beef mixture over the noodles. Freeze this or put it straight in the oven.
Thaw comepletely. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle 1 cup of mozzerella cheese and tent lightly with foil 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
