Default Lasagna, with enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce?

Do you think it would work? I'm talking about using lasagna noodles,
(not tortillas) and layering with ricotta and provolone and stuff,
mainly just substituting the sauce. I want something different, and I
have several big cans of E red sauce.

A pox on people who say "Sounds great, but I would ... ".

So: Sounds great but I would use a Mexican cheese, jalapenos, cilantro, etc.

So a pox on me.

Sure it'll work: It'll taste like lasagna made with enchilada sauce.
But different for difference's sake often doesn't work very well.
More a sign of ADD rather than culinary adventure. (No skin off my

I think you might be onto something if you plan to smoke some funny
cigarettes before eating.

If it floats your boat and you want something different, then that's the
ticket. I doubt I'd like it, but that'sjust me.

I cannot quite picture the dish working as a Mexican-style dish.

I have, however, made Chinese-style Chow Fun using enchilada
sauce as a component. (I have even done this using fettucini
instead of Chinese noodles...) In doing this, you do not want a
lot of sauce, but you want it pretty hot; other ingredients I have
put into such a dish include tofu, broccoli, seitan, onions and garlic.
Definitely no cheese.

So, I think the basic combination of noodles and enchilada sauce
has definite promise, but not necessarily in a lasagna direction.

I'm thinking Monterey Jack for the cheese. Or maybe in addition to the
traditional. I can't decide if the Jack would work with ricotta or not.

I dunno - it would be different, that's for sure. The idea doesn't get my
taste buds dancing though.

Actually, the more I think about it, the less appealing it sounds. :-P
Thanks. I think I'll just make regular lasagna, and put lots of peppers
on mine. Save the E sauce for something else later.

If you like enchilada sauce, why wouldn't it work?

It is the only Mexican-style sauce I DON'T like.

Following up to zxcvbob

Do you think it would work?


probably be OK, but I would always try refining things or making small
changes with the dish that make it unique rather than blended into other
things, for instance my english style chilli con carne is now
beef, onion, cumin, oregano,chocolate, chilli rice. No tomato. Moves it way
from other meat sauce type meals
