This is a very yummy dish, I make it often. My four year old even likes it. Enjoy!

Additional Comments:
Jennifer2 - This was very good - I only have one suggestion. The oven ready noodles were tough even after 45 minutes in the oven. Next time, I would use regular lasagne noodles.

Brooke - Absolutely delicious! This lasagna tastes like I bought it from a mexican restaurant! I could not find Fajita seasoning mix, so I googled it and found an easy recipe to make the mix myself. I will be making this all the time!

Jamie from Minnesota - Yummy I used fresh veggies instead of forozen and I used 2 fajita packets instead of 1; very good for kids.

Dellaina - Loved this so much! I used fresh vegetables, no-boil whole wheat noodles, added an extra can of tomato sauce (15-ounce, with extra fajita seasoning to compensate) and 1 1/2 cups water. Baked for an hour, let it sit for 15 minutes. The noodles were perfectly done.
