Lasagne (low carb and ricotta lasagne)

This classic dinner i like to make my interpretation of lasagne. Make two different lasagnes for the family. I  use this recipe for both with a few changes for the ricotta lasagne; first off the cream mixture is an egg and ricotta cheese then instead of zucchini i used organic pasta sheets.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
