Roasted Vegetable Mexican Lasagna

My boys could eat have “Taco Tuesday” every week. My husband and I, not so much. BUT, I could have some sort of Mexican inspired dish on a weekly basis. I love all the spices and sauces, plus the ingredients and preparation is always pretty simple which makes it easy for a weeknight meal.

I wanted to try something new and had a lot of veggies in the fridge that I knew would go bad soon if we didn’t eat them. Still, at the age of 10 and 8 years old I need to sneak veggies into foods, and making meals like this is the best way (for me) to do it.  What I love about this roasted vegetable Mexican lasagna is that almost any veggie could work. You can change it up with the season, having root veggies in the fall, squashes and peppers in the summer and asparagus, spinach in the spring. The possibilities are endless.  Here is my version of a roasted vegetable Mexican lasagna using homemade enchilada sauce, trust me you want to make your own. What are some veggies you would put in yours?
