Cheesy, Meaty, BBQ Goodness!

Wow! This recipe has been a great hit over at Kraft Recipes! It has received plenty of five star reviews from readers, and I’m not surprised. Let’s have a look at what people have said about it:


This was absolutely a 5-star recipe. It was scrumptious. I am Italian and have been making regular lasagna for years. This has a special Mexican flavor to it and makes it an entirely different lasagna dish. It was absolutely wonderful. I’m so glad I made it. My daughter and her family all loved it as well. I made a double batch and we ate it for two dinners and one lunch. We looked forward to eating it all three days.

I couldn’t wait, so this was not “make-ahead” for me! This was REALLY good. I did do a couple things differently. I added a cup of water to the meat sauce so I didn’t have to cook the noodles beforehand. Also, I am a cheese-a-holic, so I used two bags of cheese. You really can’t have too much cheese. :). But with that being said, the recipe was delicious, and I will definitely make it again!
