Saute the onion in some veg. oil. Pour in spaghetti sauce. Add in the meat. Stir well. Add oregano and basil. Put in sugar, salt and pinch of msg. Add some water. Cook for about 30 minutes. The sauce should not be too thick. (Need some liquid to soften the lasagna layer).
Ingredients for cheese sauce
250 g cream cheese ( philadelphia )

In a greased square pan or casserol, layer the lasagna sheets. Put the meat sauce and the cheese sauce alternatively. Layer all. On top, generously put shredded mozarella cheese. bake in the oven 160 degree ferenheit for about 1 hour.
