  1. This was very good! I had some for lunch the next day and for some reason it seemed even better! I think next time I'll make it earlier in the day so it has time for the flavor to get through the whole casserole. It is a fun twist on lasagna!
  2. I used salsa vs taco sauce, and 3 cans of tomatoes, because the first time I made it it was a little on the dry side, for me, but I love this dish! Also, the oven ready lasagna noodles were much better!
  3. This was such a surprise....What a great and easy recipe.....we just loved it, I added a can of black beans to it but otherwise followed the recipe.....will make often....
  4. Wonderful recipe! Used two cans of stewed tomatoes and a small can of green chilies. Everyone loved it!
