Completed and assembled taco lasagna

Ingredients

  • 12 oven ready lasagna noodles
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (1-oz.) package Old El Paso taco seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (15-oz.) carton ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups (1 lb.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 (24-oz.) jar chunky salsa

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large skillet, brown beef until no longer pink. Drain meat and add the taco seasoning. Stir until combined and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add the egg and ricotta and stir until combined.
  4. In a 9×13 Carolina Cooker baking dish, start by layering 4 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan. Next, layer ⅓ of the ricotta, ⅓ of the beef mixture, ⅓ of the salsa, and ⅓ of the cheese. Repeat the layers 2 more times.
  5. Bake covered for 30-40 minutes or until the casserole has heated through and is bubbly. Let casserole stand 10 minutes before cutting. Top with sour cream, sliced green onions, and diced tomatoes if desired.
