I use flour or corn tortillas in place of lasagne noodles then I saute an onion, a mix of red and green peppers, a green onion or two and some zucchini. Sometimes I add ground beef cooked with cumin, coriander, cracked peppercorns and epazote, and sometimes I make it all veggie and don't use the beef. I use a can (or 2 cups homemade) of refried beans mixed with some salsa and about 2 cups of grated monterry jack cheese (and a mix of cheddar and mozzarella works well too if you don't have the jack cheese) I make it in a loaf pan so what I do is cut the tortillas to fit the pan (and either compost the waste or save them for tortilla soup) and I have to say you need to either butter or spray the pan with food release as tortillas stick like mad... on the bottom I put a little salsa, then the tortilla, on top of that I put the meat mixed with refried beans or just the refried beans.. and if you're going to mix the meat into the beans make sure you add some salsa into the mix to keep it moist , then veggies, a little more salsa and then cheese and I repeat that sequence(including the salsa) until the pan is full. I cover it, bake it at 350F until it's bubbing and the cheese is melted.

Yes it does. Sounds good though. Does it nuke well the next day?
I have a RR recipe for Mexican Pizza, kinda, that I use. Really quite tasty. Got it long before her "hit it big".

sounds great!! it probably would nuke but would start out soggy than when the moisture evaped from the tortillas after the nuke it would get hard. probably would be better to heat a pan and spray with oil. put the lasagna in, spritz with water (just to get it a bit steamy and heat through to middle of a dense piece of food) and cover for a few minutes just till warm.
