In this video cooking lesson, Chef Toby shows you how to make homemade lasagna. 


  • 1 Package of ready-to-bake lasagna
  • 1 Pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 Onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon dry basil
  • Olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup of Mexican table cream (or sour cream). We use the Mexican table cream because it's not so sour, and it's easy to pour. If you use sour cream then you will need to scoop it. 
  • 2 Cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce


  1. Pour about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan at medium heat. Chop the onion and put in pan to fry. Add the ground beef, the salt and pepper. Continue mixing and breaking the meat up. Add the basil.
  2. Continue stirring with a wooden spoon so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  3. When the beef starts turning brown throughout add the spaghetti sauce. Continue cooking for about 8 minutes. Turn stove off and let cool down. 
  4. Now in a baking dish, add about 4 large spoonfuls of sauce and spread throughout. Then start your first layer by placing the lasagna sheets one next to the other. 
  5. Then add another 4 large spoonfuls of meat sauce and spread on top. Then place another layer of the lasagna sheets. Then add another layer of meat sauce. Pour 1/3 of a cup of cream on top of every layer. Repeat this process until you don't have any more meat sauce. Now add the shredded cheese all over the top. Cover with tin foil an place in pre-heated oven for about 30 - 40 minutes.
