Low Carb Lasagna w/ Cali'flour Foods Crust

I was super excited to receive my order of Cali'flour Foods pizza crusts because I intended to make a low carb pizza! After checking out their website, I realized there were many more uses! My husband and I love lasagna...it was one of the dishes I used to make when I was trying to win his heart 😍! We haven't had it in a while because lasagna noodles are a real no-go: a serving is quite literally over 200 calories and over 40 carbs - 😒. The idea of keeping the flavor of lasagna and cutting the carbs (an entire Cali'flour crust is 180 calories and 6 carbs) was appealing. I'm happy that I gave this idea a try because it was delicious and guilt-free! Enjoy!
