I took a look at my pantry yesterday and saw a few boxes of unused ready to bake lasagna noodles. I decided to make a Mexican style lasagna. It made a great lunch for today too! I started it a bit late but we still ate by 6 which is awesome!
1/2 can re fried beans
1 box ready to bake lasagna noodles like Bertolli
1 15 oz can tomato sauce plus 1 8 oz can
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
1/2 c pace picante sauce
1 can black olives chopped
1 cup shredded cheese for the topping reserve 1/2 c for topping
1-2 lbs ground beef browned with onion
salt and pepper
Preheat oven per lasagna shell box directions. In a medium sized bowl combine the tomato sauce, picante sauce, and taco seasoning. Stir. Brown the ground beef with the onion and drain. Using a ladle coat the ground beef with one scoop of the sauce. Also place a ladle of sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish. Next place the lasagna 3 across. Top each with a TBSP of the sauce making sure it's all covered. Add 2 TBSP of the re fried beans to each noodle and the same of the ground beef. Lastly sprinkle some of the cheese and black olives on each layer. The next layer lay the opposite way repeating the steps. On the final layer add the remainder of the cheese and black olives. Place in oven covered with foil for one hour or until noodles are tender. Enjoy!
