Tips and warnings

  • Use whole grain noodles and low fat/low sodium cheeses for a healthier lasagne.
  • You can create a different dish by adding fresh spinach to the layers and or zucchini strips, sliced vertically, brushed with olive oil and browned in the oven.
  • Hide the vegetables from your picky eaters by dicing the spinach into the sauce.
  • If you put noodles on the top layer, they are more likely to burn.
  • This recipe is for vegetarians, not vegans.
