White Lasagna (THM S)

I was really craving some of my homemade, low-carb Alfredo sauce, but didn’t have any of my favorite low-carb noodles….but I did have low-carb lasagna noodles…So I thought I’d try my hand at a white lasagna.  Glad I did!  It’s delicious!

Ingredients:

1lb scrambled Chicken or Turkey or Pork
1/2 cup Frozen Spinach
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
3 Tbsp Butter
6 Cloves  of Garlic minced
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 Parmesan cheese
2 tsp squeezed lemon
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cups of Cottage cheese
3 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1½ cup mozzarella cheese
Half a head cauliflower (broken into bite sized pieces)
1/2 package of Dreamfield noodles

So you have to do this in steps just like regular lasagna.  So let your first step be making the meat scramble.

Meat Scramble
1lb scrambled Chicken or Turkey or Pork
1/2 cup Frozen Spinach

1 tsp Pepper

Fry meat in pan on medium high heat, add salt and pepper while it cooks,  when fully cooked add frozen spinach and fry for an additional 3-5 minutes to remove excess moisture.

Set meat scramble aside and start the Alfredo sauce.

Easy Alfredo Sauce (See full recipe here)
3 Tbsp Butter
6 Cloves  of Garlic minced
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 Parmesan cheese
2 tsp squeezed lemon
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper

Melt butter,  on medium heat,  add minced garlic and cook until the garlic browns just a little,  stir in the heavy cream, let simmer for 2 minutes.   Add Parmesan cheese,  mixing in well.  Add all remaining ingredients.   Let simmer on medium heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

*You don’t want the sauce to thicken up as much as you’ll be using this liquid to cook the pasta noodles in the Lasagna. Yes I said to cook the noodles, because you’re putting them in uncooked, the sauce will do all the work for you.

Extra Lasagna ingredients:

Half a head cauliflower
2 cups of Cottage cheese (broken into bite sized pieces)
3 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1½ cup mozzarella cheese

Place a thin layer of Alfredo Sauce on bottom of Lasagna pan (8×12)
Followed by a layer of uncooked Lasagna noodles,  another 1/3rd of the sauce,  layer half the meat scramble,  top with 1/2 the cottage cheese mixture,  add another layer of Lasagna noodles,  followed by last remaining sauce,  add remaining meat scramble,  top that with cauliflower,  and remaining Cottage cheese,  sprinkle with Parmesan cheese,  top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake in preheated oven (375) for 1 hour.

Take out of oven and let set for 15 minutes,  cut them serve.   Enjoy!
