How Are These Lasagna Bowls Low Carb
I don’t use pasta as traditional lasagna does, and you reach for a low carb marinara. These two combinations in the recipe allow you to have a low carb version. You won’t miss the pasta cause this lasagna bowl is bursting with Italian flavor.
What Low Carb Marinara Sauces Can You Buy
You are welcome to make homemade marinara sauce or buy it at the store. Just make sure you look for a low carb keto friendly marinara sauce. No added sugar is a big factor. Rao’s Homemade Vodka Sauce, The Vine Organic, and Organico Bello Kale Tomato Basil are three popular sauces many use. But any brand that fits the keto friendly rules is free range to use.
What to Serve With Lasagna Bowls
I find this recipe is really an all-in-one. But if you are looking for some more to add, consider a green salad for a lighter option. Or maybe a steamed or roasted veggie or cloud bread for dipping in the sauce. If you are not on a low carb diet, maybe a garlic bread.
How to Store Leftover Lasagna Bowl
Leave it right in the bowl or transfer to airtight container and store in the fridge. You can expect the leftovers to last 3-4 days. Anything after I would recommend tossing out.
Best Way To Reheat Your Lasagna
You can warm up your lasagna in the oven, just cover the container with aluminum foil so it doesn’t overcook the top. Or pop it in the microwave and warm it up that way. However you choose to warm it up, you will find it reheats really well.
Can I Use Ground Beef In Replace Of Sausage in Lasagna
Of course! You are welcome to swap out with ground beef or even ground turkey. It is totally whatever you prefer taste wise. We love the seasoning in the sausage but you are welcome to use what you want.
Will Lasagna Bowls Freeze Well
I don’t see why you can’t freeze this. You can leave in the same container if freezer friendly or transfer to a proper container. Then toss in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge the night before you plan to eat it, or toss in the oven and heat frozen. Just make sure if you cook in the oven that you cover it with aluminum foil so it doesn’t burn the top.
At the end of the day, no matter what your dietary needs are, give this recipe a try. It is so easy, flavorful, and such a refreshing recipe to whip up.
