Lasagna with a Mexican slant. Not too hot, but it can be spiced up with some chopped jalapenos.

We really enjoyed this! It was a nice change from the traditional pasta based lasagne. I also added some chopped red pepper (green pepper would be good too), and a sprinkle of hot chilies. Quick to make, lower in carbs, and very yummy! We're looking forward to the leftovers today. Thanks for posting.
