Probably everyone knows how to make lasagna, but as it’s one of our favorite foods we thought we’d post a recipe. Lasagna makes a healthy meal if it’s made with rice, not wheat, noodles.
The key to great lasagna is the sauce. Today we started with 80% ground beef and let the fat from the beef act as our oil.
Once it’s brown we add onions,
Spinach and sauce:

We get a long, flat pre-cooked rice noodle that looks like this:
But any rice noodle will do, it doesn’t need to make a solid layer. Asian groceries will have several varieties of rice noodle.
In a ceramic casserole dish, put a layer of sauce in the bottom, then a layer of noodles:
Add ricotta and mozzarella cheese on top of the noodles, and then start again with sauce:
When it’s ready, bake it for 40 minutes or so at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. We lost track of time and overcooked it a bit, it came out looking like this:
It still tasted great!
