Sounds good. The layering numbers don't add up. If you follow the directions you would need 16 noodles and 5 1/3 cups Cheddar cheese for each pan. If you only repeat the 3rd layer you have not used the other half of the beef mixture. If you use only 3 noodles for each layer and only 1 cup of Cheddar where called for and repeat all layers you should come out ok.
This was really quite good. Used whole wheat noodles. Next time I may put the salsa in the food processor just to make it smooth. Will make again.
I made this a few nights ago and it was absolutely delicious! I had to hold back the ricotta cheese,as I have a picky hubby.I added olives and he added sour cream and salsa to his on his plate.I cut the recipe in half,as it is only the two of us.I would do it again! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
@ suezmike: yes, absolutely, you can make ahead and keep in the fridge overnight- just bake as directed- that is exactly what I did. This was surprisingly delicious, I used whole eggs (from my own chickens) and my homemade salsa. Maybe next time I'll take a tip from BethenyW and use flour tortillas instead of noodles. My son wants this on regular rotation in my recipe box.
Can I make this a day ahead of time and just keep in the fridge over night or should I put it in the freezer over night?
