When I think of all of the amazing meals my mom prepared for my brother and I growing up, lasagna is definitely high up on that list! The Cajun lasagna I prepared here is similar to my mom’s recipe but I added a little something-something to kick it up a notch. With a few extra ingredients, my family’s classic lasagna recipe has been spiced up a bit with some Creole flavors and it is sure to be a hit with anyone who tastes it!
