diet friendly veggie overload lasagna


i came up with this recipe because i wanted to be able to enjoy lasagna but i didn't want all the calories, carbs and fat usually associated with it. it is loaded with so much flavor that you don't miss the extra pasta and cheese! serve it with a big tossed salad and you have a very healthy meal that is waistline friendly...it is also a great way to get some extra veggies into the kids diet.
