Yes, pasta is quite possibly the most delicious thing in creation. And yes, lasagna can be a slice of heaven. We cannot tell a lie. But while incredibly tasty, it’s no mystery that carbohydrates can also make you feel bloated and gassy when consumed in excess, and a carbohydrate-rich diet is often associated with increased caloric intake. According to personal trainer Kris Gunnars, “Studies consistently show that when people cut carbs and eat more protein and fat, they end up eating much fewer calories.”
But have no fear. Good (and delicious) news is here! There are many no pasta lasagna recipes to help you satisfy your craving…without actually using traditional noodles at all! In celebration of National Lasagna Day on July 29, here are 10 (pasta-free!) lasagna recipes to keep your tummy content. Dig in and thank us later.
