Grain-free, Dairy-Free Paleo + Keto Friendly Lasagna. My Favorite Comfort Food Re-Worked To Be Healthy!
When you can get your favorite comfort food dishes re-worked to actually be healthy, life is good! With its rich layers and luscious flavors, this paleo lasagna will transport you to Italy with every bite. It's authentic, it's indulgent, it's delicious.
This recipe calls for zucchini as the replacement for pasta, but I now know that Capello's sells paleo lasagna sheets. It's up to you which you use. I personally like to use the zucchini here because veggies add in so many antioxidant benefits as well as fiber, all to keep our bodies and guts happy.
For those that don't fancy making your own dairy-free cheese, I highly recommend Kite Hill as a store bought option. If you eat dairy, you could also opt for a grass-fed, organic + preferably raw cheese here.
Whichever route you go, I can promise you that you will love this authentic lasagna free from inflammatory ingredients!
