Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

This recipe is actually on the newer side, but I received a few inquiries about it and was so excited to share this concoction that I thought I would speed up the process!

 

So this recipe was actually inspired by something I had at a friends house when I was 19 lol and of course my organic affinity for all spanish style foods!

 

If she knew that I thought about how good that spansih lasagna was many moons ago she would find it hysterical

What’s great about this recipe is that its bright, offers tons of flavor, tons of veggies, super easy to make, and is a crowd pleaser for for both plant based people and carnivores. 


 

 

(Even serving this Spanish lasagna a few days after making it I received tons of compliments on this dish!)
