Tex-Mex Lasagna has become a family favorite, especially for fans of easy meat lasagna recipes. It has that little different touch that raises eyebrows.
What You'll Need:
1 pound ground beef
cup chopped onion
1 (6-ounce can) tomato paste
1 cup picante sauce (medium or mild)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup ricotta cheese
cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided (2 cups equals 8 ounces)
pound (1/2 of a 16-ounce box) lasagna noodles, cooked according to package instructions
What To Do:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet, make sauce by browning the beef with the onion; drain the liquid. Add tomato paste, picante sauce, water, cumin, and chili powder; mix well and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese and 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese; set aside.
- Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Layer ingredients in the pan as follows: 1 cup sauce, half of the lasagna noodles, and half of the ricotta cheese mixture; repeat same layers and top with remaining sauce then remaining 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese.
