Lentil Lasagna

Lasagna but  L I T E.

I remember the first time I had lasagna, it was when I was playing at my neighbor's house when I was a kid and his mom sat us down in the basement and fed us these gobs of carby, gooey cheesy pasta. I thought lasagna was the funniest word but also the tastiest of society's creations.

Gobs of pasta aren't in my usual repertoire anymore, but I still like to enjoy pasta here and there but without all the cheese and wheat! This recipe substitutes Greek yogurt for ricotta, and a lentil-based lasagna noodle for a boost of protein - 1 serving of this recipe has 8g! Interestingly, I recently read an article discussing the relation between lasagna as a traditionally Ethiopian and Eritrean food, due to their colonization by Italy. I haven't tried these versions of lasagna, but when I do you can find my recipe write-up on the blog!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion
  • 2-28oz cans of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 10 mushrooms
  • 2 cups of mixed greens (we used spinach + arugula)
  • 32oz plain Greek yogurt
  • 1-7oz box of lentil lasagna noodles (we used Explore Cuisine)
  • Garlic to taste
