Green and White Lasagna

Low Carb. Primal. Vegetarian.

This must be the best casserole I have ever made. I’m thrilled to share it with you.

Everyone’s seen the standard meat lasagna; yellow noodles on red (sugar-stricken)tomato sauce, on brown meat if you can see it, they’re usually covered in red paste, and topped with some white mozzarella. Come to think of it, isn’t pizza more or less the same? White on red on yellow?

I couldn’t decided which picture is the best, so I made two title images. Do you have a preference?

Pasta. Pizza. Mmm, the Italians have got us good.

But now we’re doing a spin off of traditional lasagna and sea-ifying it!(That’s what I like call it. Hey, don’t judge! Green and white remind me of a sea monster for a strange reason.) Like the Lochness monster, even though it doesn’t have a colour.

Stuffed.

Look. At. Those. Layers.

I was tempted to name this the Green Goddess Lasagna, but seeing as I lacked a lot of the good ol’ baby greens like arugula, spinach and lettuce, AND the fact that this doesn’t appear green enough for that kind of title, I didn’t. But green and white still sounds great nonetheless, right?

Let’s take a closer look at those layers.

Wowie.

The Green Goddess recipe can wait.

Oh ho, just you wait.

Too bright?

Can’t decide if this one is better because it’s not as bright.

As usual, I have instructional photos for layering the casserole for those of us who deal better with visuals than words on paper. Make sure you prepare beforehand!

Layer 1

Bottom layer is the lasagna noodle. I find it’s easier to serve and cut if the bottom layer is intact, so avoid make the bottom layer a “filling” layer using cheese or meat, not that this recipe calls for any meat.

Layer 2.

Spread it like there’s no tomorrow.

Layer 3-ish.

A little extra mozzarella never hurt nobody, right?  You can totally choose to skip adding cheese in middle layers and just sprinkle some at the very top to cover and use as a finishing touch, but I myself was artsy and had other plans…

Tadaahh!! I topped mine with half a slice of cheddar cheese because, well, triangles have never been assosiated with Lasagna and I thought, why not? Besides, it gives the green and white beauty a golden finish. Like the crown on a princess.

Oh what the heck, call me weird. I don’t care. I’m serving you this great recipe. All hail me. All hail Linda!

Half entire lasagna.

Half the entire lasagna.

The hardest part just might be cutting the lasagna in half just to eat half…I mean, my mouth wants to swallow this whole.

So? What do you think?

  • I love this! I’m really just after the cheese in the lasagna. I think this is a way better alternative. =)

  • Cat

    Holy WOW. I was just scrolling through the pictures like noooo… this needs to be in ma belly! I love how simple the ‘everything batter’ is too! Consider pinned 😉

  • Cat

    * I may have missed something, but how long and do you cook this for? and temperature?

    • Whoops! I seem to have missed a step or two. Next you layer the lasagna like I did and bake at 350F for about 25-30 minutes 🙂

  • Kierston

    This looks so savoury! Thanks for linking up to the recipe on #RECIPEFRIDAY 🙂

    Hi Linda! Beautiful food photography on this. We couldn’t wait to make it! Unfortunately the tablespoon of pepper was just overwhelming. We LOVE pepper and spicy foods in general (we have a really high spice tolerance), but this was so much that we couldn’t eat it. Just wanted to verify that you in fact meant there to be a tablespoon of pepper in here and not a teaspoon? Even in cajun-style cooking there’s not this much pepper in a recipe this size, typically. And the everything batter was pretty salty as well – wanted to verify the salt content on that, too, since I wouldn’t think the saltiness would be conducive to some of the ways you can use it (dessert, breakfast, etc.). It’s an inspired recipe, though. Hopefully we can tweak it a little and make it work for us next time. 🙂 Thanks!
