  1. Using a heavy saucepan over a medium high heat you will add the hamburger or ground beef and pork sausage. Add the finely chopped onions. Stir frequently to prevent scorching while lightly browning the meat. Remove from heat. Drain and discard excess fats and oils.
  2. Mash the tomatoes using a fork and knife or two knives. Add the contents to the meat mixture and stir well. Add the tomato paste and stir well. Stir in the chipped pepperoni. Add the water, chopped parsley, sugar, salt, pepper, basil, and oregano and garlic powder. Stir well to combine. Reduce heat and allow simmering uncovered for about 30 minutes while occasionally stirring to blend the flavor and aroma of the ingredients together.
  3. Follow the directions on the box of lasagna noodles for cooking. Drain, lay flat and cover until needed.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Prepare a 9 x 13 inch baking pan by applying a very light layer of cooking spray and then set aside until needed.
  6. Beat the egg and then add the ricotta cheese. Combine well and then add the thawed, drained, squeezed chopped spinach. Cover with paper towel or saucer and set aside until needed.
  7. Spread ¾ cup lasagna meat sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Layer lasagna noodles overlapping a bit at the edge to cover the bottom of the pan. Add an even layer of meat sauce and sprinkle with cheese and spinach mixture. Spread evenly and then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and then some parmesan cheese. Repeat the process, while ending with a layer of sauce. Sprinkle on some more shredded mozzarella and then again with some parmesan cheese.
  8. Place in preheated oven to bake for about 45 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and allow the dish to cool for about 20 to 25 minutes before cutting and serving.
