Using no-cook noodles gives you a jump start on assembling this hearty main dish that Carolyn Schmeling of Brookfield, Wisconsin recommends. It cuts nicely after standing a few minutes, revealing flavorful layers.
This zesty layered casserole is a real crowd-pleaser. It was one of our children's favorites when they were young...now our grandchildren love it! Plus, it's easier to make than traditional lasagna.

“Lasagna’s always been a family favorite," explains Catherine Yoder of New Paris, Indiana. "But since my children and husband aren’t very fond of some veggies, I started ‘sneaking’ them into this dish and they hardly notice! It feeds a crowd and is great for potlucks or family reunions.”
This recipe combines my love of lasagna with my love of Mexican food. I tried to make the recipe healthier by using extra-lean ground beef and I increased the fiber by adding beans. -Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina
Tortillas replace lasagna noodles in this beefy casserole with a south-of-the-border twist. With salsa, enchilada sauce, chilies, cheese and refried beans, it's a fiesta of flavors. —Tina Newhauser, Peterborough, New Hampshire
Convenient no-cook lasagna noodles take the work out of this traditional favorite adapted for the slow cooker. Because it's so easy to assemble, it's great for workdays as well as weekends. We like it accompanied by Parmesan bread or garlic cheese toast. —Lisa Micheletti
A definite crowd-pleaser, this classic lasagna is thick, rich and meaty with lots of cheese—just the way I like it. Even though my parents were Hungarian, I have a weakness for savory Italian foods like this.

The four different types of cheese make this lasagna a real crowd-pleaser. You can vary the amount of mozzarella, Monterey Jack, provolone and Parmesan to suit your preference. For our family, the more cheese, the better.
