MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2014

This was okay as is, but when I added Creole seasoning at the table it became much better. It's rather bland without it. I do think I'll make this again, but I think it would benefit from using Ro-tel tomatoes with jalapenos in place of the crushed tomatoes. Either that or replace the tomatoes with salsa.

I thought it was great, it had less calories then the orignal lasagna.
