Mexican Noodle Bake (Meatless)

Mexican Noodle Bake (Meatless) created by The Food Gays

I got this recipe from a cooking group on freezer meals. It comes from the book Frozen Assets Lite & Easy by Deborah Taylor Hough. My family loves this, and bonus, if you make it ahead and freeze it, it is a very fast meal on a night you don't feel like cooking! This recipe makes a lot, so I usually freeze half and bake half when I make it. We had this again last night for dinner and I wanted to post it so everyone else could enjoy it too! This is good served with sour cream and salad.

    I was really excited to make this dish but I was a little disappointed because it was bland. I would say it’s just ok.

    This meal was delicious. My boyfriend does not eat meat. I found this recipe here and I cooked it yesterday. He loved it, he said he would get some soft taco shells and make tacos with it. My coworkers (next day lunch) loved it also. Two of them had me print the recipe for them. Thank you for sharing this tasty dish.

    Great recipe, I used pepper jack cheese. I really don't think it needs much baking except to melt cheese. I will make this again, for sure!
