Oh wow, yum, yum, yum. Next time I will put some black olives in it or on top just cause I love olives. Also, I used oven ready lasagna noodles. Turned out great. Could only use 3 noodles per layer. The directions are a little weird. The third layer didn't have beef and the first layer didn't have salsa. It's all good. It's a casserole. It all blends together. It really doesn't matter how you do it.
