Did you ever watch Garfield? There has never been a cartoon a relate to as much as I do that hungry, chubby cat. Garfields biggest struggle in life is his love for Lasagna, but his need to lose weight. 

I cant even remember the last time that I ate lasagna, noodles and all. Its been too long. 

I have tried zucchini lasagna, and it was pretty good. However, it wasnt a completely authentic lasagna taste (No duh, Low. No noodles. Hello?). Anyway... I wanted to try making noodles with the cauliflower breadstick I made a few weeks ago. I was confident that if you can make a bread stick, you can make a noodle, and if I could make a noodle, I could make Low carb Lasagna. 

Turns out.. I was right :) I found a recipe on peaceloveandlowcarb.com that did just this! I tweaked the recipe a little bit to make it slightly lower in fat! 

This was so good. Like seriously, I know its been awhile since Ive had lasagna, but one bite of this and my inner Garfield was awakened. 

Youll want to try this one this week. Trust me. 


For the Noodles: 
4 oz. Cream Cheese
¼ Cup Parmesan Cheese – Grated2 Eggs
1 ¼ Cup Mozzarella Cheese – Shredded
1/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
For the Filling:
1 lb. Lean Ground Turkey¾ Cup Mozzarella Cheese – Shredded
1 ½ Cups tomato sauce, Divided1 Tbs. Onion powder
1 tsp. Dried Oregano
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Dried Basil
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 tsp. Trulicious powdered stevia
6 Tbs. Low fat ricotta cheese

Try These Cheesy Cauliflower Bread Sticks

Directions for the Noodles:
Soften cream cheese in a microwave safe dish. Add in eggs. Cream together. Add Parmesan and seasonings and Mozzarella. Using a wooden spoon, mix well until mostly smooth. 

Spread mixture into a 9x13 inch casserole dish thats either lined with parchment paper or sprayed with Pam. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 20 minutes in the fridge. After cooling, cut into three pieces. 

Directions for Layering and Baking:
In a large skillet brown ground turkey, add 3/4 tomato sauce. Season with onion powder, dried oregano, garlic powder, dried basil, Italian seasoning and Trulicious powdered stevia.

Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan.  Top with the first “noodle” layer
Layer a third of the ground beef mixture.  Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 Tbs. ricotta cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer.  Repeat these steps.
Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. 

Tada! I hope you love this low carb lasagna as much as I did. Unlike the original recipe, I used lean ground turkey, low fat ricotta, and made my own sauce of using store bought. You can view the original recipe here.
