3 lbs of 95% fat-free minced beef
1 package of precooked lasagna
1 onion
1 stick of butter
1 block of sharp chedder cheese, chopped into blocks
¾ tin of tomato paste.
2 cans of diced tomatoes.
4 heaping tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 heaping "cap-fills" apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon rosemary
½ teaspoon italian seasoning
2 heaping teaspoons of pre-minced garlic.
⅓ tin of water (if needed)
2 large squirts of tomato ketchup
pinch of salt
10 "turns" of pepper

Bottom layer: meat sauce
Middle layer: meat-cheese-lasagna (repeat as many times as you can)
