12 Best Choice No Boil Lasagna Noodles
1 pound of ground meat (beef, turkey, venison, etc.)
1 Best Choice Taco Seasoning Mix
1 (15oz) container ricotta cheese
1 Best Choice egg
3 ½ cups Best Choice shredded cheese (I used a combination of fancy Mexican style and taco blend)
2 (16oz) jars of Best Choice Thick & Chunky Salsa
Optional extras: Black olives, green onions, sour cream, jalapeños, cilantro for toppings, and chips to compliment your meal.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, brown meat completely. Drain water from meat. Stir in taco seasoning until combined.
In a medium, add ricotta and egg; stir until combined.
In a 9×13 baking dish, layer 4 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan. Layer 1/3 of the ricotta mix, followed by 1/3 of the meat and ¼ of the salsa, and finally 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat for two more layers (you will have leftover salsa for your chips).
Cover with foil and bake 30-40 minutes. Let lasagna cool for 5 minutes before cutting. Top each piece with sour cream and other desired toppings.
