125 g mushrooms sliced

STEP 1: Fry the chopped onion and crushed garlic in a little oil for 5 minutes.
STEP 2: Add the minced beef, mushrooms and herbs.
STEP 3: When meat is brown add 850g chopped tomatoes, sugar, tomato paste and salt to taste, and simmer for 30 minutes.

STEP 5: Pour half the meat sauce into a baking dish, then add alternate layers of dry lasagna, meat mixture and cheese sauce, finishing with the cheese sauce.
