Mexican Italian Fusion Lasagna

We had a dinner party the other night and wanted to come up with something a bit different that would easily feed 8 people. Lasagna is always a favorite. While you can easily toss in some peppers for a delightfully spicy kick, we decided to take it a few steps further by swapping in more traditional Mexican ingredients. The roasted poblano peppers add a welcomed garden flavor, and the jalapenos bring in the spice! Everyone liked it!
