This started with recipe #46967 by Karen=^..^=, but I changed it so much that I thought I would post my additions as a separate recipe. This makes a TON- a 9x13 lasagna pan filled FULL when I make it, but could easily be halved if desired. This would also divide well to make one and give one away to a family that just had a baby or is dealing with illness. I use whole grain pasta, lean beef, low fat cheese and lower sodium canned products where possible, and this is actually a fairly nutritious meal that tastes like melty comfort food. You can adjust heat levels depending on your family's tastes by choosing hotter or milder seasoning/salsa/tomatoes. I haven't tried freezing this, but think it might do okay with that- if you try it, please let me know!
