Until this day, there is no food I love more than my Mom’s lasagne. While she likes to try and fatten me up with her delicious cooking, it is rather counterproductive to my goals of keeping in shape. It is for this reason that I gave her the task of coming up with a tasty lasagne recipe which is more suited to my fitness lifestyle; and here is the result, an absolutely mouth-watering low-carb lasagne to die for!
