Prepare sauce as follows: Brown and drain meat, remove from heat. Add tomatoes, tomato paste and water. Add spices and cheese. You can use a grated hard cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese. The sauce looks vile, but I promise it will be alright, keep going!
Prepare lasagna pan with Pam and cover the bottom with a thin layer of sauce. Cover with DRY lasagna noodles. Continue in layers till you have 4 layer sauce, 3 of noodles (if you run out of sauce, stretch with tomato juice). Cover with layer of waxed paper. Seal tightly with foil and bake 1 hour and 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let stand 1/2 hour before serving. Serves 12 to 15. May be frozen.

Robin, do you leave the waxed paper in place while the dish is cooking? (05/19/2006)
