Lasagna is a favorite around our house. On one of Rachel Ray's cooking episodes, she made a lasagna out of fresh packaged ravioli and I thought that it looked so good.
A few days later I was in Sam's and saw these Roast Red Bell Pepper Ravioli and thought they might make a good lasagna also. The chick peas in the marinara sauce with the roasted red bell peppers really gave it the hummus flavor.
I enjoy my husband helping me in the kitchen so much. He was right there with me layering the lasagna the whole time. I am not sure he will pick this lasagna over the traditional lasagna, but he was impressed with how delicious it was.
