This recipe is SOOO good! I only made one lasagna so I halved the ingredients. I also subbed the noodles for oven ready noodles and used about half a box. I served this with black bean and cheese quesadillas. My boys really enjoyed it.
It calls for 2 pounds of ground beef when you make two 13x9 dishes. That's one pound for one 13x9 dish. If you only want to make one dish then cut the recipe in half.
I made this recipe and cut it in half to see how it turned out...followed the instructions and it was so dry..I think when adding the taco seasoning should have added water like you make it for regular tacos and let is simmer for a few min.Think it may have worked better...will not make it again...
I know a number of people say the directions confused them so I will join the group by asking are we supposed to add any water when we add the taco seasoning to the ground beef? Seems logical but might it become too watered down? If we don't then wouldn't the beef mixture be too seasoning heavy? Just asking before I make it...
I would guess they mean 1/2-pound of ground beef since the recipe says in "each" of the 2 pans, layer half. I take that to mean half of the 1 pound for each pan.
