Rachel's Primal Lasagna - Noodle Free!

Introduction

I love this noodle-free lasagna and the sauce is gorgeous (see pictures) It's from a recipe I tweaked over on Recipezaar and it is delicious!!!

You will need one 9x13 pan and one 8x8 pan to make this dish as it makes a ton of filling!

  • This is the best lasagna I've ever tasted. It rocks! Who'd have thought a vegetable lasagna with chicken sausage could be this good? Used Trader Joe's chicken sausage bec. it has no casings. Didn't have a mandoline, just sliced the eggplant super thin. Prep is much longer than 20 minutes though.Yum! - 2/11/12
