Low Carb Recipe
Instead of carb-laden noodles, this Cabbage Lasagna recipe uses cabbage. You may be surprised at how close this tastes to real lasagna with the oregano, tomato paste, Mozzarella, etc. The humble cabbage is a very versatile vegetable. It's great for coleslaw, but cabbage can bring so much more to your table. Some varieties are great sources of vitamin C.
