  1. Hello!
    I want to make this for my daughter’s birthday :)
    Was going through the ingredients and making the shopping list and realized that there are no avocados in the list, but it does say to layer the guacamole.

    Just wanted to let you know :)

    I’ll look at that guacamole recipe and add the ingredients.

    I’ll let you know how it comes out :)

    Will also be making the vegan lasagna again as we loved it!!!!
