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 !!
