Lasagna. What's not to love.
Cheesy oooey goooey, saucy, meaty, flavorful, low carb...
Wait. What? Low carb?
Yes! This is an awesome low carb lasagna without pasta!
Everything is in this lasagna BUT for the pasta. The roasted zucchini is an excellent substitution.
Now, don't tell me that you are not a zucchini fan. It soaks up all the saucy numminess and doesn't taste like you're eating vegetables at all.
Seriously, you gotta believe me.
This was SO incredibly delicious and so nice and low calorie.
But don't take my word for it, go and make it. Trust me. :-)
