Jose's Chicken Lasagna

Four years ago, I made this up, and it has all the colors and goodness you could want in a pasta dish.

It contains chicken sausage, bell peppers, carrots and zucchini, and rather than a tomato sauce, I made a white sauce and added Mexican 4-Cheese combo, which made me think of Jose. I love "Jose by the Sea Salt" made here on M.V. by an acquaintance.
