    WindyCityHealthyChef's Note:

    I love lasagna with white sauce but all the cheese, cream and carbs don't make it a healthy choice. I set out to revamp this great classic to be health-conscious while still keeping that great sinful taste and I came up with this recipe. The prep takes awhile since the lasagna noodles need to be cooked before baking and there are lots of veggies to slice up but it's well worth the effort! The healthy end result balances protein and carbs, gets in a serving of healthy veggies AND is so low-cal you can even enjoy a glass of white wine with it. Bon Appetit!

      Very tasty. My hubby and I are trying to lose a few, and it can be tricky as he is picky. He gobbled this up! I did swap eggplant for the mushrooms as neither of us like them, and I took the advise to thicken the sauce made by another reviewer.

      This is a great recipe. I found the prep a little labor intensive, everything was organic and whole, so all the chopping took time and I did make a double batch so that could be why. The family loved it. Thank you for the recipe!
