Love the flavors. This was an instant family hit!
Amazing, I made this recipe and feed multiple "picky" eaters and they loved it! I wouldn't change a thing about the recipe.
What a crowd pleaser!!! Made this for our HS volleyball conference tournament hospitality room. It overshadowed the regular lasagna I made and so many tasters wanted the recipe. I made it my own and added black olives and 1/2 cup of salsa verde to each layer. I used mexican cheese on top. Don't omit the avocado cream sauce - this is the icing on the cake, so to speak. I did try this with regular hot pork suasage and didn't get the same flavor at all. Stick with the chorizo, it's the best. Great potluck and great for teenagers.
My husband does not like lasagna, but he absolutely loved this.
