KETO-FRIENDLY LASAGNA RECIPE

Favorite comfort food in my house growing up was always a cheesy lasagna. When I decided to follow a keto diet, I knew I needed to turn my Mom’s high-carb lasagna and my favorite Italian comfort food into a keto lasagna, but still keep the flavors of traditional lasagna.

Regular lasagna uses refined pasta and is very high in carbs if you are following a keto lifestyle. It’s also too high in carbs for many following a low carb diet and will definitely spike blood sugar.

To make my lasagna keto, swapping the traditional white flour pasta for a lower carb option was the key.
