Cheesy Taco Lasagna

I’m a fan of incorporating different (and unexpected) foods into the same dish, and this is a perfect example. Cheesy, comforting and not nearly as messy as a plate of tacos – this dish was a hit in our house and I’m sure we’ll have it again sometime soon.

Cheesy Taco Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 box no-boil lasagna noodles or cooked lasagna noodles
  • 3 c of your favourite salsa
  • 2 15-oz tubs of ricotta
  • 1/4 c sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 c shredded mexican cheese
  • garnish suggestions: sliced green onion, diced or sliced jalapenos, diced fresh tomatoes, diced bell pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add ground beef. Season with taco seasoning and cook, crumbling up with a wooden spoon or heat resistant silicone spatula, until no longer pink, about 8 minutes.
  3. In a 9 x 13″ baking dish, spoon a layer of salsa over bottom to cover. Cover with a layer of lasagna noodles.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, sour cream, and egg and season with salt. Spread ricotta mixture over noodles and top with a layer of ground beef and cheese.
  5. Repeat layers until baking dish is full, making sure to end with cheese.
  6. Cover with aluminium foil and bake until bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes.
  7. Let cool 10 minutes, then garnish as desired.

Bon appetit!
