Lasagna

This is one of our favorite recipes, and it's relatively easy. I received this from a co-worker before Ethan was born.

1 lb. ground beef
1 t. oil
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 t. bay leaves
1 t. oregano
1 t. salt
1 T. parsley flakes
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (13 oz.) can tomato paste
1 lb. shredded Monterey Jack cheese (I never end up using all the cheese, so you may want to get a little less of each)
1 lb. shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb. Parmesan cheese
1 lg. pkg. lasagna noodles (I only need 9 noodles)

Brown hamburger in oil with onion, garlic, and spices. Add tomato sauce and tomato paste to beef mixture; simmer about 40 minutes. Pre-cook noodles.
In a 13x9 inch greased baking dish, layer noodles, meat sauce, grated cheeses, and Parmesan; have cheese as the last layer.
Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Uncover, bake additional 5-10 minutes. You can make this the day before and bake the day of serving.
