Mexican Lasagna Roll Ups
This dish is so easy to make, and the kids can even help out. You can make this ahead of time and just pop it in the oven when you're ready! It also freezes well. Don't forget the garlic bread.
- Serves: 8 persons
- 1(16 ounce) package lasagna noodles
- 1pound ground beef
- ¾cup water
- 1(1 ounce) package hot taco seasoning mix
- 1(1 pound) package shredded Mexican cheese blend, or as needed
- 1(4 ounce) can sliced black olives
- 1(28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
- 1(8 ounce) jar taco sauce
- ¼cup sour cream, or as desired
Step 1Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain. Pat noodles dry with paper towels.
Step 2Cook and stir ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease. Stir water and taco seasoning mix into ground beef; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let meat cool.
Step 3Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 4Lay a noodle flat on a work surface and place 1 tablespoon seasoned meat at one end of noodle; roll up just to enclose meat filling. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons shredded Mexican cheese blend onto noodle and roll just to cover cheese; sprinkle a few black olives on noodle and roll noodle to the end. Repeat with remaining noodles.
Step 5Pour enough spaghetti sauce into a 9x13-inch baking dish to cover the bottom; lay rolled noodles with seam sides down into dish over sauce. Spread taco sauce over noodles and spoon remaining spaghetti sauce over the top. Scatter any remaining meat sauce over the rolls and cover dish with aluminum foil.
Step 6Bake in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbling and cheese has melted, about 40 minutes. Serve with sour cream on top.
