Inside Out Lasagna

Happy New Year everyone!!

So while we’re all trying to be good in 2013, sipping wheat grass shots, showing up on time to Yoga, and wrestling with separation anxiety over our secret chocolate drawers (doesn’t everyone have one of those??), I thought I would taunt you with a little bit of lasagna… :)

Because nothing says New Years resolution like fluffy ricotta cheese, rich tomato sauce, and a big. fat. bowl of carbs

or does it??

This healthy take on lasagna is lower cal, full of fiber, and bursting with flavor.The perfect way to start on a realistic path to a healthy 2013! The trick to successful resolutions is setting manageable goals – forget the juice detoxes and 3 hour workouts. Do what makes you feel good inside and out….. like lasagna! With a healthy twist.

This was my recipe featured in the January Issue of my very first magazine appearance! The goal was to take a comfort food and make it over into a healthier dish to keep us on track in the New Year.

Here’s a fabulous trick from this recipe – bake your ricotta separately in the oven. This way you can crumble up a healthy portion of the cheese instead of the gigantic portion found in most lasagna dishes.

Throw in some whole wheat pasta, spicy cracked red pepper to get the metabolism going, and fresh basil, and you’ve got a super easy (super quick!) healthy dinner.
