13 years ago when my hubby and I were on a low carb diet, this was one of his favorites. I've been making this darn right delicious pan of yumminess ever since. If you love lasagna, you will love my low carb no noodle version. You don't have to be on a diet to enjoy this #WOWTASTIC & #Amazeballs recipe year round! Cooking with Love & Passion sw :)
