Mexican Lasagna

Mexican Lasagna by virginiasweetpea.com

Now that fall is here and the weather is a bit cooler, I’m craving hearty casseroles and soups.  One dish on our dinner table this week is Mexican Lasagna, an easy casserole shared by a running friend back in 2005.

Mexican Lasagna includes a meat sauce flavored with tomatoes, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning, layered with corn tortillas, ricotta, and Mexican cheese blend.
