Hasta La Vista Pasta!

I have been doing 31 days of primality this month to kick the sugar habit and fine tune my paleo/primal diet (see the page tab at the top).  I vowed to try one new recipe from a paleo/primal cookbook or other source each day.  I rate each recipe tried on the 31 Days of Primality page, but I just had to feature this recipe on the home page tonight.  It is from Everyday Paleo, a cookbook by Sarah Fragoso. So far every recipe from this book has been a winner, but this one is the best so far:  Hasta La Vista Lasagna.  

As you can see from the picture, I added a little cheese (a local raw milk tomme and a local raw goat milk chevre with some parmesan on top).  It would have been just as good without the cheese, but I do eat some dairy and life without cheese is, well, pretty sad and I have no reaction to cheese, so why not?  I gave up gluten three years ago, have eliminated most sugar, but cheese in moderate amounts is gonna stay.  
At any rate, this would be great either with or without.  What's in it?  Onions, garlic, grassfed ground beef, local mild turkey sausage, oregano, basil, cayenne, salt, pepper, tomatoes and tomato paste, and the secret ingredient:  thinly sliced zucchini!  Both my daughter and I agreed that we actually like the zucchini noodles better.   Honestly, I will use this recipe for lasagna from now on.  It is that good.

  1. I just received this cookbook after ordering it from Amazon. I'm going to try this one this weekend now that I see it has your stamp of approval...and since I've been craving lasagna!
