"This easy dish is one of our family's favorites," says Cindy Osborn. The Little Rock, Arkansas reader likes to double the recipe, making one zippy lasagna for dinner and another to freeze. "Sometimes we eat the second one in the same week," she adds.

MY REVIEW

My family loved this. For those who like spicier we added sliced jalapenos as a garnish. I like this because it is a lightened up version. Corn tortillas vs flour and cottage cheese vs sour cream.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2010

I love this dish. Hint: I use 9 corn tortillas, putting 3 in each layer. On each layer I leave 2 whole, placing each whole one in a corner, diagonally across from the other. Then I cut one in half to cover the open spots in each layer; otherwise, there's too much open space not covered up by a tortilla. As for the cheese, I use a half and half mixture of cheddar and mozzarella. -Lori in WI.

This was good but my husband thought it tasted like a frozen dinner from the store for some reason!
