Spray a 10 to 12 inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium/high heat. Brown the sausage, beef and onion for about 7 minutes. Drain any excess grease from the pan. Add in garlic, salt and pepper and stir together for about 1 minute until garlic is fragrant.
Stir in marinara sauce and turn heat to low while you prepare the ricotta topping.
Mix together the ricotta, eggs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, ½ cup parmesan cheese and ½ cup mozzarella cheese.
Spread the ricotta mixture over the meat mixture evenly. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
Garnish with fresh chopped basil
Notes: You can add chopped spinach, diced zucchini, or sliced mushrooms to the meat mixture.If you do not have a cast iron skillet, you can use a regular skillet to cook the meat and use a 9x9 baking dish or 3 quart casserole dish and transfer the meat mixture into that and then top with the ricotta mixture and mozzarella cheese.
