Lasagne used to be one of my favourite Italian meals, however as it’s a pasta dish it’s wheat based making it a no go for anyone following a weight loss diet plan who want’s great fast results!

However, I’ve found the solution! Healthy lasagne, rather than use pasta between the layers or mince and tomato sauce this recipe uses leeks! Yep, cut large sized sheets out of a leek and use these to replace the pasta! Simples!!
