Easy Picante Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes so it was no surprise that I loved this picante lasagna recipe the moment I tasted it.

It’s my sister in-law’s recipe that I’ve adapted slightly because that’s how I get down.  Every time she’d make it I’d always say “I HAVE to get this recipe one day”. Well that day has come. This is my third time making this picante lasagna and it is definitely in my last minute dinner recipe stash.

The greek yogurt really lends a unique and delicious flavor to this lasagna and I just love how you can throw the noodles in there uncooked. It all comes together so quickly and the flavor is “company” approved.

I’ll be making up a few batches of this lasagna to throw in the freezer on those REALLY busy/lazy night. A lot better that Stouffers!

Serve it up with a salad, breadsticks and sweet tea and then call me over for dinner !!

Watch me make this picante lasagna from start to finish!

  1. I made this last night for dinner for me and my 7 year old (my husband doesn’t eat meat) and it was a HIT!!! I absolutely loved it! My one year old couldn’t get enough of it, although I had to pick around teh chunky ingredients for her. I am definitely picking up a copy of your e-books. Every recipe I’ve tried thus far has been amazing!

  2. DO YOU BOIL THE NOODLE FIRST ? OR YOU POP IT IN AND LET IT WORK OUT ITS SELF?

  3. Hey! My family really enjoyed this recipe. I cooked it for a get-together, and it was gone within the first hour. Please keep making these AWESOME videos!

  4. I made this lasagna along with bread sticks and your margarita beer punch. The lasagna was great, but the top layer of my noodles were tough. I wonder what I did wrong? I just threw that layer of noodles in the garbage and boiled some and put that up top. The entire pan was gone the next day. My brother and everyone was calling asking what was in the beer punch, and could I make more. Now they don’t know how to act. They want to buy the ingredients so I can make it again. I told them about your site. I pray they look it up so they can get up off my nerves.

    • Here’s a litte tip when using regular noodles. Just simply run it in hot water under facet for 1-3mins and it will soften and cook easily in oven.

  5. I made this tonight it was a HIT!!! Kids loved it, I love all of your recipes thanks so much!

  6. I’m one month into being a newlywed who found your YouTube channel and it has really been a life saver! When I was single I hardly cooked and relied heavily on frozen skillet dinners. I made this last night, and told my husband that I made lasagna with a Mexican twist. I had give him a disclaimer because he’s an extremely picky eater. He got a little bothered and reminded me that I have to give more consideration to the fact that he’s a picky eater. He tried it anyway and absolutely loved it, and took some to work for lunch!! Thanks for showing us how to make this tasty dish.

    Have u ever tried this w/ground chicken? What seasoning did u use when u cooked your turkey or did u put any? I’m really happy I ran across this site…seems like u get great reviews on all your dishes…what else do u cook w/chicken besides the stuffed shells

  8. I made this tonight it was good but I didn’t like the italin seasoning.. next time i’m not going to use it.

  9. I have used several of your recipes and always get good responses from the receivers, even request to sell items, which I turned down. Keep up the good work, thank you!

  10. This recipe looks delicious. I would like to make it. However I have two questions. Where can I find the italian seasoning? Also may I use sour cream instead of greek yogurt?

  11. OHHHHH MYGOSH!!! I MADE THIS FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME TODAY(FOR MY SONS 2ND BDAY FAMILY DINNER) AND IT WAS A HIT..I RECEIVED ALOT OF COMPLIMENTS FROM MY NIECE AND NEPHEW(PICKY EATERS) AND OF COURSE MY MAMA AND AS WELL AS THE HUBS. SO FAR ALL THE MEALS THAT I HAVE MADE FROM YOUR WEBSITE HAS BEEN A SUCCESS. AND TO TOP IT OFF MY SONS BDAY CAKE WAS YOUR FAMOUS BANANA PUDDING CUP CAKE/ 8IN CAKE…KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

  12. My noodles came out tough. Any clue what I could have done wrong?

  13. Mmmm…. I’m going to make this for tonight’s dinner maybe. My sister is a huge fan of lasangna.

  14. THIS RECIPIE WAS GOOD! I COOKED IT UNCOVERED FOR 20 MINUTES AND KIND OF BURNT THE TOP OF IT. I WILL MAKE THIS RECIPIE BUT NOT LEAVING IT UNCOVERED FOR SO LONG LOL I WILL TRY THIS RECIPIE AGAIN AND TRRY USING A LITTLE MORE SALSA :) VERY QUICK AND EASY… THANKS!

  15. Hey Monique! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It is a big hit with my family as well as with my coworker. I like this recipe better than the original lasagna. It is delicious and packs on a lot of flavor. Keep your recipes coming!

  16. Hey Diva, I made this and it was delicious. My kids didn’t really care for the chunky texture of the ingredients in the picante sauce so maybe I will have to compromise with them and blend the picante in a blender next time. I loved it but unfortunately I cannot eat the whole lasagna by myself, like I would like to, and they are such “picky eaters”.

  17. Did you use the no boil lasagna noodles or the regular ones?

  18. Hi Monique! I made this last night, my husband loved it. Can you do a recipe for regular lasagna please?
    Thanks…Vee

  19. Lady I made this the other night and it was TASTY!!!!!! My man and I both loved it.
