Meatless meals are back in action for this girl.
After doing the Keto thing I realized I felt better when I ate more plants and fruit, so that’s what I am going to do. I decided that my love for lentils had to inspire a favorite comfort meal- lasagna!
So here is how it went down!
You will need
12 cooked lasagna noodles
1 jar of pasta sauce
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
1 cup dried lentils
Italian seasoning and garlic powder
Shredded mozzarella cheese ( I use the pre shredded kind in the bag because I’m lazy like that)
Step 1 – boil the lentils in about 2-3 cups of water until tender. Keep an eye on them in case you need to add more water. Once liquid is absorbed and lentils have cooled, mash them up – I use my hands because that just works best.
Step 2 – add the pasta sauce ,tomatoes and seasoning
Step 3- start layering! In a greased 9×13 pan layer 3 noodles – then lentil sauce then cheese . Repeat 4x
It should look like this beauty
I added a little extra old cheese on top – because I love cheese. I swear this pan weighs 20lbs.
Step 4 – cover with foil and cook for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees then remove foil and broil the top for about 3-5 minutes
Holy cheesy yummy! Serve with warm garlic bread and you have a carbtastic meal.
