Meaty Three Cheese Lasagna

It's been so cold here and a few weeks ago nothing sounded better than a warm lasagna. I found this recipe on Chef in Training and made a few adjustments and it was fabulous!!!

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp minced garlic
6 oz tomato paste
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
8 oz tomato sauce
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp salt
12 lasagna noodles (cooked)
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
15 oz container ricotta cheese
3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350. Begin to boil the noodles. While noodles are boiling saute the ground beef and onion in a skillet until the beef is cooked through.  Drain the grease then stir in the garlic. Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Spray a 9x13 dish and begin to assemble the lasagna. Arrange 4 noodles in the bottom of the dish then top with 1/3 of the mozzarella and parmesan. Spoon half of the ricotta cheese then top with 1/3 of the beef sauce. Layer with 4 more noodles and repeat the above layers. Finally top with the remaining 4 noodles, beef sauce and the remaining mozzarella and parmesan mixture. Bake for 1 hour. Remove and let cook for 10 minutes before slicing.
