The Best Low Carb Lasagna

This trim healthy mama S recipe is the best lasagna recipe I have ever ate!! t is so good. I have taken this to potlucks and no one can tell that it is low carb. I never come home with leftovers either. Everyone that tries it loves it.

This recipe takes time, so keep that in mind, but right now, a lot of us have a little extra time on our hands. I made the sauce and let it simmer while I did other food prep. I made the wonder wraps while I was making the sauce. I added parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning to the wraps to add more flavor to the dish. It is perfect! If you don’t have the psyllium husks, here are a few other options: Option 1, Option 2 Add Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to the egg wraps.

I haven’t tried this but you can use fresh spinach leaves or thinly sliced yellow squash or zucchini. I have even seen recipes floating around with cabbage leaves. Again, I haven’t tried those different ways of making a low carb lasagna but some people feel they make a great lasagna noodle replacement. I particularly love the wonder wraps in place of the noodle to make this fit in the trim healthy mama S guidelines. This recipe is worth the prep and time it takes to make it. It is very quick to come together once you have your sauce made and your noodle replacements made.

This recipe is ooey and gooey and perfect. When you take it out of the oven, let it sit for a few minutes before cutting into it, otherwise it will fall apart and not cut right.
