Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

This is a very yummy recipe that was a change compared to the traditional lasagna I usually make. I used slices of pepper jack cheese for the top but it was a little too spicy for my liking. Next time, I will stick with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I was thinking of my wonderful husband when I was making this dish since he loves buffalo wings. As a matter of fact, he was eating buffalo wings while I was cooking this lasagna. Great minds think alike. It is Valentines Day tommorrow and I miss him terribly. I wish we were able to spend it together and not so far a part but we only have until May before we are together again. Then we will have two months together until he has to leave to Afghanistan for a year. Having a loved one serving in the military can be hard, especially during the holidays such as Valentines Day. I can't wait for us to be together again, but I am almost finished with college which is why I could not join him in Colorado at the moment. In the meantime, the phone, letters and emails have become our way to connect. I hope everyone has a fabulous Valentines Day tommorrow!
