Spectacular Paleo Lasagna
Got a banging new recipe for you! I'll get straight to the point and say this is by far one of my best recipes to date *dismounts soap box*. Super simple lasagna with quality ingredients makes this recipe a "husband favorite!" Simple, fresh ingredients, a little technique and you'll swear this Paleo lasagna is better than the pasta version.
There is a little dairy in this because I couldn't stand not using my raw, grass fed parmesan cheese. Just omit if you're sensitive to dairy and swap butter for ghee on the top layer of zucchini :). Send me a pic of your creation on Facebook with the hashtag #paleolasagna for a chance to be on my research and development team for the Primal Vixen Program.
