Mexican Sweet Potato Lasagna

Serves: about ten

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan (of course)

Your lasagna just got upgraded! Not only is this lasagna vegan but it also has a Mexican flare and it is grain-free! I for one am always up for Mexican food, and I absolutely love using sweet potatoes instead of the traditional pasta in a lasagna! What could could be better than this dish?
