EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

We’re using ground beef in this recipe instead of the usual steak found in fajitas so the lasagna will be easier to cut. When we tested this recipe using slices of steak, we found that cutting the lasagna into serving pieces was difficult.

No-boil lasagna noodles are so convenient to have on hand. Most large grocery stores now carry boxes of them right next to the regular lasagna noodles and other pastas.
