6 packages lasagna noodles, (16 ounces each)
10 pounds bulk Italian sausage
10 onions, medium, chopped
30 cloves garlic, minced
11 cans tomato sauce, (29 ounces each)
2/3 cup dried basil
3 tablespoons ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons fennel seed, crushed
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon Pepper
6 cartons ricotta cheese, (32 ounces each)

Cook noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes; rinse in cold water and drain. Cook sausage, onions and garlic until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce and seasonings; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes. Grease ten 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dishes. In each dish, layer about 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce, four noodles, about 1-1/4 cups ricotta, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella, about 1/3 cup Parmesan, 1/4 cup Romano and three slices provolone. Repeat layers. Top with four noodles, about 1-1/2 cups of tomato sauce, 1 cup mozzarella and about 1 tablespoon parsley. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
