Italian food is one of my favorites, but it’s usually so high in carbs! This low carb spaghetti squash lasagna casserole recipe has all the flavors and textures of lasagna, but cuts the carbs and is filled with good-for-you ingredients. Topped with a hearty traditional Italian meat sauce and layers of melted cheese, you won’t miss those lasagna noodles a bit. The recipe is a snap to make and will feed a large, hungry group. My boys can be a bit skeptical when I change a classic recipe, but they loved this lasagna casserole and my entire family gives it two thumbs up!
