I used to love eating Mom’s homemade lasagna as a kid. However, now that I’m keto, there is no room for traditional noodles in my diet. It’s a good thing all the flavor in lasagna comes from the filling itself, not from the noodles. This lasagna stuffed chicken recipe totally hits the spot and I don’t have to worry about all the carbs! This particular recipe is higher in protein than fat so I would recommend balancing it out with an additional fat source.
