- 12 wheat flour tortillas
- 2 cups marinara sauce
- 1 pound ground beef or Italian sausage
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a large skillet, cook the ground beef or Italian sausage over medium heat until browned. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and cook until the onion is translucent. Drain any excess grease.
- Add the marinara sauce to the skillet and stir well. Season with dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Allow the sauce to simmer for about 10 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
- In a separate bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix well.
- Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish to prevent sticking.
- Assemble the lasagna layers:
- Spread a thin layer of the meat sauce at the bottom of the baking dish.
- Place 3 wheat tortillas side by side, covering the bottom of the dish.
- Spread a layer of the meat sauce over the tortillas.
- Dollop spoonfuls of the ricotta cheese mixture over the sauce and spread it evenly.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over the ricotta cheese.
- Repeat the layering process until you have used all the ingredients, finishing with a layer of meat sauce and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese on top.
- Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
- After 25 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
- Once cooked, remove the lasagna from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This will make it easier to cut and serve.
- Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired, and serve hot.
