This is a great vegetarian lasagna recipe. I thought I would miss the beef, but not at all. The only thing I changed was that I cooked the noodles before putting the dish together as I didn't have no-bake lasagna noodles and was not sure how lo-carb noodles would be uncooked. Because I cooked the noodles, I didn't add the water called for in the recipe. Update: I made this recipe for my daughter and her kids over the holidays. They are PICKY about veggies. They chowed down although the youngest did ask what that "green stuff" was! lol!
My family absolutlely loves this recipe. I had cut it out of a magazine and made it quite a few times and then lost the cut out. I was so happy to find it again. This recipes raises the bar for lasagna. I did add meat because my guys like the meat but I think it is good either way
