This Taco Lasagna Recipe From Christie Rampone Is Something To Taco-bout

When Taco Tuesday is calling your name (but you’re also looking for some lasagna, too), you might need to make a mashup of the two delicious dishes. That’s what Christie Rampone, captain of the United States Women’s National Soccer Team, did. She created a dish that has everything you’d love about tacos (think black beans, seasoned ground beef, and shredded Mexican cheese) but instead of tangling with taco shells, she layers the ingredients into a lasagna that everyone will eat.
