For the pasta preparation:

In a casserole, boil 1 liter of water with the cooking oil and salt. Put the pasta to cook until it tender and avoid overcooking just the exact firmness. Afterwards, prepare a strainer to remove the water and set aside.
In a medium casserole, sauté the garlic and onion using the buttermilk until it golden brown, then add the ground beef and gently mixing well until becoming tender.

Let the mixture boil for about 3-5 minutes, and finally add the all-purpose cream. Make sure the white sauce thickens while mixing and do not overcook.
Next is to arrange the pasta in Pyrex dish, pour the beefy sauce, followed with the white sauce and grated cheese. Repeat the layering procedure until you complete the entire dish.
Lastly, top the remaining grated cheese to make it yummier.
Final cooking procedure:
Pre-heat the oven to 320 degree for at least 5 minutes before you insert the Pyrex and bake the lasagna for about 20 minutes or until you start noticing the top is gently burning.
When ready, remove the dish inside the oven to enjoy your Cheesy and Beefy Lasagna.
The Pyrex is extremely hot and so you need to be careful, especially if you have kids.
