Enchilada Lasagna

Just so you know my family does not eat casseroles unless it is Italian Lasagna, and they loved this one.  It is super yummy and received 2 thumbs up.  I found it in a Taste of Home magazine and it was submitted by Charlene Griffin in Minocqua, WI.  All I can say is that lady knows good food.

Enchilada Lasagna
Serves 12

1- ½ lbs of ground beef
1  medium onion, diced
1  garlic clove, minced
1  can (14- ½ oz) stewed tomatoes, undrained
1  can (10 oz) enchilada sauce
1 to 2 teaspoons ground cumin
1  egg beaten
1- ½ cups (12 oz) 4% cottage cheese
3  cups (12 oz) shredded Mexican cheese blend
8  flour tortillas (8-in) cut in half
1  cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pin; drain.  Stir in the tomatoes, enchilada sauce and cumin.  Bring to a boil reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine egg and cottage cheese, set aside.  Spread a third of the meat sauce into a greased 13-in x 9-in baking dish.  Layer with half of the cheese blend, tortillas, cottage cheese mixture and remaining meat sauce.  Repeat layers.  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
