Healthier Lasagna

Recipe by little_wing

This is my way of making lasagna..inspired my my DSIL's recipe. You get all the flavor and only a little of the guilt! You can cut back on the garlic if it's not your thing. You can use full-fat ingredients too of course. Can be made up to two days ahead and stored in fridge.

Great lasagna! I added more mushrooms, curshed re pepper flakes, and used low-fat mozzarella & fat-free sour cream. The recipe says it makes 10 servings, more realistically this makes 6-8. Leftovers were not as good as when it first came out of the oven, but I still enjoyed it.
