Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.
In a large frying pan, brown onion and mince over medium heat. Add pasta sauce, and simmer 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Butter a 22x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the pasta, Cheddar cheese, soured cream, 1/2 sauce mixture, remaining pasta, mozzarella cheese and remaining sauce mixture. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheeses are melted.
