Taco Lasagne from Sugar Apron
This unusual recipe is called “lasagne” because it has layers of tortillas (instead of lasagne noodles), along with beef with taco seasoning and pico de galla layers.
It’s great if you’ve got loads of people to feed!
Garlic Butter Baked Salmon from Spending with Pennies

This recipe combines the get-it-on-the-table-now simplicity of sloppy joes with the satisfying flavor of a really good cheeseburger.
The traditional (and some less traditional) burger toppings are chopped into the beef mix, and served on soft wholegrain burger buns.
I hope these dinner ideas give you food for thought when you’re planning your menus!
