Do you love lasagna but don't want to make a gigantic casserole dish of it AND you are watching the foods you eat? Here is a super easy, quick recipe for a healthy version of one of my favorites.
Optavia 5&1 compliant
If follow Optavia (or another low carb diet plan), this lasagna is 5&1 compliant. One serving equals 3/4 leanest, 1/2 lean, 3 greens, 1 fat, and 2 (or 3) condiments - your choice.
This is a super yummy meal that fills that lasagna craving and its made in a single serving. Which, can also be frozen for a later time on those rushed nights that you have no time to cook or just don't know what to eat. This will save you from making a not so great decision when in a pinch for a meal.
Palmini Noodles - life savers!
If you haven't tried Palmini Noodles (hearts of palm) you are missing out!! I order them on Amazon and I am sure you might be able to find them in stores. But for me, it's a no brainer with Amazon as it just shows up at my door. These noodles have the consistence of a regular noodle. You cook then like a spaghetti noodle. I tend to shorten the cook time (cuz I am I'm patient) which just created a firmer noodle. It is your preference on how long to cook them. They help absorb the flavor in of the meal you are cooking in. I love them for an easy "green" for any meal - 1 package equals 2 greans so its such a great easy shelf stable green that for you to take anywhere.
So take a chance and give this recipe a try! You won't be disappointed
Planning is everything! And makes life easier with cooking for 1 or on a diet/healthy lifestyle
A few tips for an even easier meal: 1 cook my 99% leanest ground turkey in advance and freeze it in weighed, labels baggies and place in he freezer for quick and eat pull out for any meal, pasta, lasagna, taco Tuesday and so much more. Again, in pinch this is awesome to have on hand.
