  1. 16 pieces (about 16 oz.) lasagna noodles, uncooked
  2. 1 pound ground beef
  3. 1 jar (about 28 oz.) spaghetti sauce
  4. 1/2 cup water
  5. 16 ounces ricotta cheese
  6. 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  7. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 2 teaspoons chopped oregano
  10. 2 teaspoons chopped basil
