Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil and margarine (or butter) at medium heat. Add the meat, onion and garlic and cook until the meat is no longer pink.
  2. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water, salt, pepper and chili peppers. Cook uncovered for approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add all other vegetables and cover. Let it cook for about 30 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  4. In another large pot, cook the pasta al dente. Drain well.
  5. To prevent your pasta from sticking to the dish, cover the dish with 1/3 of the sauce first. Then add a layer of lasagna (1/3 of total). Repeat twice and top with cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Wait 10 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy

In you want to make it cheesier, don’t hesitate to use more cheese and to put a little bit of cheese on top of each layer of pasta. You can also use a mixture of different types of cheese for added flavor.
