4 - In a 9x13 baking dish, start by layering 4 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan. Next, layer 1/3 of the ricotta, 1/3 of the beef mixture, 1/3 of the salsa, and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat the layers 2 more times.

6 - Top with sour cream, sliced green onions, and diced tomatoes if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I use oven ready or no-boil lasagna noodles to save time. You can use regular noodles as well, just run them under hot water and then run fingers down them; and assemble.
It's important to cover it tightly when baking. This kind of steams the noodles with the salsa.
Freezing: This freezes great! To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator for 8 hours and then bake as directed
