I didnt use any specific recipe, instead just looked at few and tried it.

Most recipe calls for about the same main ingrediants and cooking method.

What i did was:

1. Cook the meat with chopped onions, garlic, thyme, basil and rosemary. Sautee first then let simmer.

2. Somewhere added the cubed tomatoes and tomato puree (small can).

For layers
I put the lasagna sheet at the bottom after lining the casserole with baking oil.

Then one layer if meat, followed by parmesan, then meat again, and finally mozarella.

The bakingdish i was using wasnt a deep one so i could only manage those 3 layers.

Baking settings
Preheat at 200c for 15 mins, bake with cover at 180c for 30 mins (top and bottom), uncover and bake for another 10 mins

The verdict:
1. Meat and sauce wasnt well blended. Most recipe said to simmer in low fire in a dutch oven for about 2 hours. I have neither the 2 hours nor did i hae the dutch oven. Because of this, my meat turned up dry, but not flavorful enough.

2. Too little cheese. Need to be very generous otherwise coulnt taste anything.

3. I should hv added a layer of potato as well to hold the cheese better
