This homemade lasagna recipe from the 'A Sweet Pea Chef' blog puts a fresh spin on the traditional Italian dish by excluding the one main ingredient that is central to most lasagna dishes—the noodles.
In place of long lasagna noodles, the Sweet Potato Lasagna recipe calls for a mandolin or sharp knife to slice sweet potatoes into thin rounds. In the same way that strips of noodles are placed atop one another, these sweet potato disks are arranged in a way so that they overlap to form the layers of the dish.
While this pasta-free recipe swaps one type of starch for another, it remains true to the use of ingredients like olive oil, ground meat, cheese, tomato sauce and classic Italian spices. The result is a recipe that's not only gluten-free, but healthy and lean.
