Noodle Free Veggie Full Lasagna

YAY, Whole Foods had Goat’s milk mozzarella on my last shopping trip! Again, I’ll say YAY! I have been asking them for this all summer, so imagine my delight this last grocery shopping trip when they said they had it! It couldn’t have come at a better time, because I really wanted to try this lasagna recipe!

It turned out SO yummy!!! It tasted exactly like lasagna with noodles, so I promise you won’t miss the noodles in this. It’s really quite easy to make, and with all the veggies in it, it’s quite good for you! I think this would also be really good with some ground turkey in the sauce, but today wasn’t a meat day for me, so I just stuck with the veggies. I LOVE lasagna, so I get really excited when I have a recipe that is healthy and still tastes amazing! Happy dance!
