For this recipe, you will need ricotta cheese, egg, Parmesan cheese, milk, lasagna sheets, olive oil, brown onions, carrots, celery, button mushrooms, garlic, and lean ground beef.

You can also substitute some of these if you want. Try using mozzarella cheese, Italian mix cheese, cream, half and half, vegetable oil, yellow onion, leeks, canned tomatoes, garlic powder, ground tofu, ground turkey, or ground chicken.

If a lasagna sounds complicated, do not fear, it is a tasty recipe that will only take a few minutes of your time. You can even substitute the lasagna sheets if you are trying to keep the meal low carbohydrate. Go with eggplant or zucchini layers instead.

Although it seems like a lot of cheese, the ricotta in this recipe is a fantastic choice. It is full of protein, calcium, vitamin B6, vitamin D, magnesium, and iron. It is also lower in fat than other types of cheese out there. This is a great idea to replace the usual bechamel and make your lasagne much healthier and nutritious.

Be sure to serve this lasagna warm, and sprinkle some fresh parsley or basil on top. If a lasagna on its own does not seem like enough, why not serve it with a green salad? Try some arugula, cherry tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar.
