Low Carb Keto Lasagna with Cottage Cheese

0 comments

I recently learned that “lasagna” is in fact the name of the pasta sheets used in the dish Lasagna. If you take the lasagna out of the Lasagna, is it still a Lasagna? ๐Ÿค” Does it matter? Whatever you feel about the absence of lasagna, this low carb keto lasagna with cottage cheese tastes like a piece of Italian lasagna heaven anyways! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‘Œ

Don’t let the use of cottage cheese throw you off. Several people have been skeptical about this before tasting it, only to be surprised at how delicious it is! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Also, if you are feeling a bit crazy I would try to put some layers of cheese inside the lasagna as well. I didn’t think of that until now, but it sounds A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! ๐Ÿ˜ BRB.. I’m making another lasagna!

This low carb keto lasagna with cottage cheese is perfect as a meal prep. You can make it the day before, keep it in the fridge and reheat it in the oven the next day. This even tastes better the day after it has been made, when all the flavors has gotten time to mix and set. ๐Ÿ˜‹
