This is a recipe that is a favorite of mine. Being that most times between the sauce and the cheese, lasagna is a dish way outside the low sodium limits of most loso diets. The estimated nutrition information is assuming you’re a piggy like my husband and I and want a giant piece. You could easily cut that amount in half by opting for a more portion accurate slice. 🙂

Tips!

  • Shredding your own cheese from the block helps prevent gritty texture in your sauces. Pre Shredded cheese has anti caking ingredients that will change the texture of your final recipe.
    This recipe freezes wonderfully!
