5. Enchilada Lasagna — Alton relies on a homemade enchilada sauce featuring chipotle chiles, fresh garlic, cumin and tomato sauce to marry flavors in his Mexican-inspired lasagna, filled with tender chicken and topped with queso fresco before being baked until bubbly.

4. Turkey Lasagna — Swap out classic beef or pork and replace with sweet Italian turkey sausage to make Ina’s big-batch lasagna, featuring four different cheeses, including Parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta and goat cheeses.

3. Lots O’Meat Lasagna — A fuss-free staple that’s filled with comforting flavors, Paula’s hearty lasagna boasts layers of sauteed ground beef and Italian sausage, a creamy mixture of cottage cheese and Parmesan, plus herbed tomato sauce and shredded mozzarella.

2. Lasagna Rolls — The secret to making Giada’s ricotta-stuffed rolls is cooking them with a duo of sauces: both rich, buttery béchamel and lighter marinara.

1. Mexican Lasagna — Rachael uses flour tortillas, cumin-laced chicken and taco sauce instead of traditional noodles, ground meat and tomato sauce to build her 30-minute lasagna (pictured above), a top-rated recipe with nearly 900 user reviews.
