Now, having said that, I also absolutely love lasagna made with zucchini noodles, yellow squash noodles or eggplant noodles. But sometimes, you just want the real deal and these grain free tortillas make perfect lasagna noodles as well as a host of other amazing uses. The very first time I made lasagna using them, I didn't say anything to my family members (who are not grain free or low carb), and half way through the meal (actually Christmas eve dinner), I asked if anyone noticed anything different about my lasagna...and NOBODY; I mean NOBODY could tell. Pretty sneaky, huh? So, I can say with confidence that these have been "Christmas eve dinner tested" and that is the most scientific method of testing that I know! LOL Trust me, if this were to have gone the other direction (as in not great)...I would NEVER have heard the end of it and really, what mother would intentionally ruin Christmas eve dinner for her family?
When I have a larger group for dinner, I make a huge pan of lasagna with them, but when it is just hubby and me, or a smaller group like tonight, making a "Lasagna Pie" using a round deep dish pie works beautifully. I used Maverick Ranch grass-fed lean ground beef in my meat sauce (so far it's the best grass-fed ground beef that I've found). I love their uncured bacon, too. I've tried a few different local Georgia brands of grass-fed beef and just did not care for them. I also added diced onion, red bell pepper and zucchini to my meat sauce and used Mezzetta's Tomato & Sweet Basil pasta sauce (made with all natural ingredients, no added sugar or other junk). It turned out great! I served it with a big fresh salad. It was the perfect Sunday night dinner! I snapped a few photos below.
