I make this a lot. Easy and good.

1 pound ground beef cooked and drained

16 ounces cottage cheese

1 16 ounce can refried beans

1 package of ten flour tortillas

1 package taco seasoning

8 ounces colby cheese

Cook ground beef with taco seasoning per directions on package. In a 10 by 14 glass pan put one layer of tortillas in the bottom. Fill in corners with tortilla pieces. Spread ground taco meat in the bottom on top of tortilla. Top meat with another layer of tortillas. Spread cottage cheese on top of tortillas. Top cottage cheese with tortillas. Spread refried beans on top of the tortillas. Top with another layer of tortillas. Put colby cheese on top of the last layer. Stick 6 toothpicks into the lasagna at the corners and in the middle.

Cover with foil so the toothpicks keep the foil off of the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and remove foil. Bake another 15 minutes till cheese just starts to brown. Enjoy. This is better the second day. My kids love it.
