Dietetic Lasagna is there really such a thing?

So, as I mentioned, for dinner last night I made a lasagne out of the Lose Your Belly Diet, by Travis Stork. It consisted of lasagna noodles, the book suggested whole wheat, but I had regular, cottage cheese instead of ricotta, a bit of mozzarella..and some marinara sauce. You essentially used reduced quantities of each, along with an egg and a large quantity of spinach. I can't write the whole recipe as per mylot guidelines..it was pretty good..a bit crunchy due to the reduced quanitities of sauce and cheese. I think this would be OK to have once in awhile..and probably is much healthier than regular lasagna..not sure about the calories though. Have you made something like this?

Just like @marguicha for me regular Italian lasagne (with Parmesan, no ricotta), a smaller portion, but the real thing.

I have never made anything like this, but I always go for whole wheat noodles for dishes I make.

I try to buy them..but I don't think the store I was shopping in had them..or they may have cost more..I just looked for the least expensive.

I follow my doctor´s ideas about dieting. I can eat a regular lasagne, but the servings have to be reduced by half.

Yeah, for me however, trying to eat a small portion of something I really love, especially if there is a big pan there..probably will not work. I try not to eat a huge quantity at once..but I can almost guarantee I will go back for seconds.

@snowy22315 I understand that. There are foods that I cannot have around the house. So most of the time I don´t buy it.

I always struggle while making a lasagne.. it's because half of the ingredients are not available here.

Maybe you could order them online..of course, you would likely pay a premium for shipping.

I usually try to make most recipes a healthy version if possible. Since I'm not that fond of cottage cheese I use part skim mozzarella instead of the whole milk. Your recipe sounds like it would be good especially if you are a lasagna lover (I am)

I think if I make it a gain though I will try to use a bit more sauce or add some water to the sauce though, as the noodles were a little crunchy.

Love me some cheese. Barely eating any now that we are eating more vegan. That sounds almost like pizza. I bet it was tasty.
