      Heat the oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened.

    • 2

      Mix in the tomato paste, stirring to coat the onions. Stir in the oregano and salt.

      Arrange the noodle pieces in an even layer on top of the onions. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the noodles. Add the brisket to the pan over the noodles. Cover the meat layer with the tomatoes, including the juice.

    • 4

      Cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until the noodles have absorbed the liquid and are soft.

      Top the lasagna with a few dollops of the ricotta and sprinkle with the basil.

      For the green salad: in a salad bowl, toss the lettuce with the shredded carrots and red bell pepper. Chill, then toss with the dressing or serve right away.
