Add mince and cook, stirring to break up lumps, for 3–5 minutes or until browned. Add passata and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.

Continue layering with remaining lasagne sheets, mince sauce and cheese sauce. Sprinkle lasagne with grated cheese and parmesan. Bake for 50 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
