Paleo Lasagna!

Who’d have thought, me the “carb queen” eating something low carb! This is a great recipe inspired by the blog “Against All Grain” 

I don’t have the dietary restrictions of blogger and book author Danielle Walker, but I figured with diabetes and high blood pressure in my family, eating low carb probably is healthy for me. So here’s my version of Lasagna if you’d like to try it.

Paleo noodles for lasagna
Noodles are ready to go into the oven. I added Italian spices to the batter, but you could leave them out.

Noodle substitute:
6 eggs, 3 tbsp. almond flour, 3 tbsp. coconut flour, 1 tbsp. dried Italian spices, 1 1/2 cups Almond milk …Mix it all together. Pour into a pre-greased cookie sheet. I put the greased cookie sheet into a 400 degree oven and get it hot (about 3 minutes). Then I pull the oven rack out and pour the batter onto the cookie sheet, push the rack back into the oven and shut the oven door. It’s going to take about 10 minutes to bake the eggs solid. (This batter can be mealy and break apart easily. Once the mixture is baked, I turn the oven to broil and raise the rack and lightly brown the “noodles”. Keep your oven door open and watch it. It can burn easily at this stage. I’m drying them out a little bit more and making them easier to handle.Remove the pan from the oven and cool. (This batter will make 2 cookie sheets of noodles.)

Gather ingredients together for Paleo Lasagna.
Gather all the ingredients together. I’m making a small pan of Lasagna to take to work.

Gather together:3 pounds fried turkey burger, (I season mine with herbs and garlic and “fry” in water until all the water is gone.)
2 cups ricotta cheese, 2 cups cottage cheese blended together
2 cups mozzerella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
3 cups fresh spinach
4 or 5 cups Spagetti Sauce (lately I haven’t had time to make my own and have used 2 jars of Rinaldi Tomato Basil Spagetti Sauce
(The ingredients above will make 2 pans of Lasagna. It freezes very well.)

Lasagna ready to bake or freeze for later.
Lasagna all put together and ready to with me to work. Leftover noodles in the background will be put in a plastic ziploc bag and used for another recipe. It can also be frozen.

Layer ingredients in a baking dish or cake pan:I start with sauce on the bottom and add other things. I add two layers of noodles. The first noodles for the first pan are cut into big squares about 8″ x 8″ and lifted from the cookie sheet with a spatula. Then I piece in the other areas in the cake pan.

Lasagna is hot out of the oven and ready to eat.
Lasagna is ready to eat.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes to heat thru, wilt the spinach and melt the cheese.

I haven’t tried it yet, but thought that leftover noodles might go well in a chicken alfredo dish with a white sauce.
