    I love how light it is. I’m a big fan of cheese, but I really don’t like the ricotta in lasagna. I refused to eat lasagna as a kid for that reason. This looks so much better.

    Im a recent vegetarian and have been searching for easy nutritious meals that won’t compromise flavor- the Kale and Spinach Lasagna is the Best! I substituted the spinach noodles with brown rice gluten free lasagna noodles by tinkayada and the meal was a hit for vegetarians and non- vegetarians! I will make this recipe again and again!
    Thank you
