I have to admit I love a good fake-out, especially when it’s a dish I thought would be a total fail. This protein and fiber filled lentil based noodle lasagna recipe was gobbled up. Luckily, the green color of the raw lentil noodle became more of a beige color or I’m not sure these would’ve gone over so well. Lentil pasta is filled with nutrients that help fuel the body. It gives us the delicious taste of pasta with more bang for your buck, and It's an easy way to stay on the right track. Check out below for the full recipe.
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 container part skim ricotta
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
