Low Carb Lasagne

Lasagne is something we all dream about. A low carb lasagne is otherworldly. Garfield was definitely onto something!

Traditionally as I’m sure you know lasagne is a type of wide, flat pasta, possibly one of the oldest types of pasta in the world. On a keto diet, pasta is a no. We have successfully substituted the lasagne sheets for aubergine as in this recipe, thin butternut sheets (slices) and courgettes sliced very thinly.

All the flavor is in the white sauce and mincemeat really, the “pasta” is just there to soak up the flavor. So bring on the low carb lasagne in all it’s greatness and enjoy!
