"Has anyone tried this using a small curd cottage cheese instead of the ricotta? I'm just not a big fan of ricotta."

"Anything with Taco and Lasagne in the name gets my attention. It was delicious!!. Made both batches for my army of a family, and the leftovers were even better."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

"Good! I only made one pan. Takes a while to get to the table. We added lettuce, sour cream, and salsa on top. Next time, I'm going to add refried beans to the layers and probably increase the meat."
