Nanu Chuck's Lasagna

Layer cooked Lasagna noodles with Ricotta cheese filling (mix Ricotta with 1 egg, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning), spaghetti sauce, little meatballs, thinly sliced pepperoni, sliced hard boiled eggs, and mozzarella cheese. Make several layers ending with noodles with sauce on top, cover with foil. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour. Remove foil and top with more Mozzarella cheese and bake for another 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and starts to brown. Remove from oven and let set for 15 minutes before cutting.
