"you'll Never Miss the Noodles" Lasagna

"you'll Never Miss the Noodles" Lasagna created by dojemi

I found this recipe on a low carb site and modified it slightly to suit our tastes. We had it for dinner last night and it was AWESOME!! Very yummy and the flavor of all those fresh veggies blended beautifully with the sauce! DH went back for seconds, so this is definitely a keeper. Add a side salad and your meal is complete!

    My husband is an Italian from New York and is VERY snobby about his Italian food, but he enjoyed this a lot! We are on a ketoish diet and it was very filling and tasty! I had made sauce from scratch from the tomatoes in the garden, so we replaced the sauce ingredients with that.

    This was SO GOOD. I’m Italian and I thought for sure I would miss the noodles. I really didn’t. I also froze some squares and thawed as needed. It freezes really well and tastes just as good the second time around. Thank you!

    I didn’t add the spinach because my husband is not a fan. I also threw some cheddar cheese that I had left over onto the top. Was delish!

    I've tried something similair but this one worked out much better for us. We enjoyed the spinach (threw in some chopped kale also) and mushrooms. The only small change I'd make next time is cut back the water abit cause the zucchini adds moisture to the dish already. I increased the beef 1/2 lb & used cottage vs ricotta. Excellent dish & great for carb counters, thanks for sharing.
