½ pound lean 90% ground beef
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

Spoon 1/2 of the sauce inside a 7x12 baking dish. Cover with a layer of lasagne pasta. Top with 1/2 cup of the sauce and another layer of noodles. Layer the remaining meat sauce over top and sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake uncovered for 25 minutes until the cheese has lightly brown and the edges of the lasagna are bubbly.
