    Delicious! Only put in half the pasta sauce, and added half a jar of salsa verde!

    It was very good. Pretty easy too. I actually used part tomato sauce and part Salsa. I might try it again with enchillada sauce.

    absolutely delicious, and very versatile! I subbed black beans for the zucchini because I have picky eaters, and I used a Chipotle salsa instead of the pasta sauce, and it was amazing. Loveoking forward to leftovers. :)

    it was great! the family enjoyed it. I shredded the zucchini instead of cutting it into smaller pieces.

    I used trappista cheese instead of mozzarella, due to reviews I read here about mozza being tasteless, especially in combination with the lot of spices. I used salsa instead of the sauce stated. 5/5, definetely will do again, next time maybe I'll add some tomato sauce too, to crank it up a little.

    The Mozzarella was pretty flavorless, but all in all it tasted good

    Made this against my better judgment. I've made other versions of Mexican Lasagna, none of which have ever called for pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. The recipe calls for 10 corn tortillas to spread across a 9×13 inch pan in three seperate layers. Unless you're using large corn tortillas, you're going to need at least 18. I also used a full 2 cups mozzarella instead of 1 and it still wasn't enough. But my biggest complaint is that the recipe doesn't even specify on what size jar of pasta sauce to use. Needless to say, the recipe turned out mediocre and no one in my family enjoyed it. If you plan on making this recipe, plan on a lot of tweaking.

    I love it!! So easy and turned out really delicious. Definitely a keeper thanks again for such an amazing recipe

    Delicious! Super easy and so good! It's for sure a keeper! I made it just like it says to. I may use reduced fat cheese when I make it again.

    Never use ragu, make my own sauce. I see no Mexican ingredients and feel using any Italian sauce is a miss here. Use enchilada or taco sauce, add peppers (hot if desired) or just tomato sauce with taco seasoning. You need to a Mexican cheese, cheddar is a mistake in Mexican cooking.

    I used the basic recipe but changed it to use with pizza sauce, mushrooms, black olives, ground beef and cheese but stacked it the same and it turned out great.

    I have been making this for years but use mild salsa instead of the pasta sauce. It gives it more of a Mexican taste. I also use a spring-form pan that is the same size as the flour tortillas. Cuts like a cake/pie. And never be afraid to add lots of cheese! :)

    Very impressed with this recipe as it is my first time using this site. Big Hit for extremely picky kids. Next time I'll try adding shredded lettuce on top at the very end.

    I made this tonight.. And I had great reviews! So very easy and so very good!! I absolutely would recoomeend this . Only thing that I did add was a little more garlic powder and cheese! Awesome, an frill free dish to make if you do not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen!! Loved it. Im thinking the Chili Powder gave it the great flavor... Not sure tho!
