what is picante sauce

I see a comment was made back in Jan. of 2011 regarding the picante sauce not in the recipe instructions. Was this ever resolved? Or is the picante sauce a typo and not needed??? It would be nice to know before I make this...Thank you very much

My bow tie lasagna is now in the oven; however, I was confused once I started this recipe. It calls for garlic powder, salt, and picante sauce but does not tell you where to add it. I added the garlic powder and salt to the ricotta mixture and the picante sauce to the spaghetti sauce and hope this does the trick. I will post another comment after we have had dinner. This was a very easy recipe.

Instructions on when to add the picante sauce are clearly stated in step 4
