Heat Canadian butter, onion, carrot and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat until onions are translucent and garlic is fragrant.

Add ground beef, salt, and pepper. Cook until beef is brown, stirring frequently. Drain any fat.

Add Marinara sauce, water, and noodles to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender.

Top lasagna with dollops of Canadian ricotta cheese and half of the Canadian mozzarella and Canadian Parmesan cheeses. Cover the pan and cook on low for 5 minutes. Sprinkle remaining Canadian cheeses on top and cover until melted.

Remove the pan from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes if desired. Sprinkle with oregano, chopped fresh basil and parsley before serving, if desired. Enjoy!
