heaphy's lasagna a la mexicana...

this is a great dish that my sister, heaphy- whose real name is heather,  brought to recipe club quite a while ago, but i try to space things out a little:)  no matter how long ago she brought it, it is totally yummy!  it's a great mix of dishes & flavors.  it's also really kid friendly which is also a plus!

{heaphy's mexican lasagna}

½ Pkg. (16 strips) wide Lasagna noodles

1 lb. lean ground beef

½ c. chopped onion

½ c. chopped green bell pepper

2  12 oz. jars salsa

1 7 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained

1 tsp. chili powder

1 c. (8 oz) cottage cheese

2 c. shredded medium cheddar cheese

Sliced black olives

Sour cream

Cook lasagna noodles and drain.  Brown onion, green pepper and ground beef, drain grease.  Add salsa, corn and chili powder.  In 9x13 pan, arrange noodles and sauce alternately with cheeses between.

(Save some cheese for top) Garnish with extra cheese and sliced olives.  Cover with foil (use tooth-

picks to keep foil from sticking to cheese!) Bake at 375F for 30-40 minutes.  Let rest for 10 minutes after removing from oven.  Serve with sour cream.
