Heat oven to 375˚F (190°C). In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook beef with salt and pepper for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove beef from heat and drain. Stir in pasta sauce and water. In a bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, basil and oregano.
Spread 1 cup (250 mL) meat sauce in bottom of 13 x 9 inch (3.5 L) greased baking dish.
