Don’t worry there’s a boat load of cheese to make up for it.
So, this is just veggies and cheese, but somehow it’s miraculous and delicious. Jay has been eating low carb lately, and while I’m definitely against crazy diets and “methods” of weight loss that invariably fail or are just too weird to maintain, I definitely am FOR eliminating things that don’t add a ton to our bodies nutritionally speaking. I love bread and pasta and fried foods and eat them more than enough, but having meals here and there that don’t include some of those things isn’t a bad thing at all, and I’ve been enjoying the challenge of coming up with dinners that aren’t boring but that also don’t include a carb side dish. Veggies have carbs, fine, but that’s not what we’re talking about.
On to the lasagna! This is super simple, especially if you have a mandoline. You shave a bunch of veggies and will use them as “noodles,” then you layer the veggies with cheese and marinara. You can 100% use your favorite jarred sauce or you can make a batch of my favorite simple marinara and use it in this. I don’t mess with meat or ricotta or anything but veggies, sauce, and cheese. We bake, we let the lasagna rest, we eat. Maybe with a hunk of bread for balance?
I’m the worst at low carb.
