New recipe! I got to say, I stole the “egg noodles” idea from another site😛 I learn it from Steve, he has an amazing blog with a lot of mind-blowing primal recipes. Go check him out at Primalocity!
I had the ingredients and the time to make everything from scratch, but feel free to substitute anything I used. Like canned tomatoes and the like.
– 7 tomatoes, peeled and diced
– Spices (I used black pepper, dried basil, 1 small bay leaf, garlic powder, fresh oregano and hot pepper flakes).
– Salt and a bit of Stevia (or raw honey)
I just put everything to simmer in a small pot for like 40 minutes. Don’t make the same mistake I did and DO NOT cover with a lid!! This will help reduction and the sauce will came out a lot more thick than mine.
Meat & Mushrooms
– 1.5 pounds of ground beef
– 1 package mushrooms, chopped
It’s a no brainer. Heat your favorite pan and add some lard!
Veggies & Cream
– 1 small zuchinni, shredded
– 1 huge bag os spinach, chopped
– 4 Tbsp heavy cream
Your pan should have some juice from the meat you just cooked. Add a little bit more lard to it and then the zuchinni.
Then add the spinach. As you can see, I had a little problem in this step…
Don’t even try to stir! Just leave the mess alone to steam itself. It will go down after a few minutes.
Then add the cream, cook a little more and reserve.
The egg “noodles”
Now, for the real paleo heart of the recipe. How in Earth do you make lasagna without lasagna noodles???
– 6 eggs
– 6 Tbsp tap water
Whisk eggs and water together.
Heat the pan (again) with a little bit of fat. You only need to add fat once. Add about 3/4 cup of the batter. Since we added water, the “pancake” will be very very thin, just like we want!
After a few more seconds, take them out. Oh, you don’t need to flip them right. You can make a mess and end up with a bunch of small pieces of cooked eggs and it will be fine ;) It’s fool-proof! Repeat with the rest of the batter. You’ll have something like this:
Finally! Get some pyrex oven dish. Pour a little of the tomato sauce.
Then the “egg noodles”. Now you can see why it doesn’t matter if you don’t get the triangles right. Just cut the pieces until you fill the area.
Then add a layer of meat and mushrooms…
Then more sauce…
Spinach & cream layer, and some shredded cheese…
Rinse and repeat as needed.
I bake it for about 50 minutes at 350ºF (180ºC). If you take my advice and cook the tomato sauce without the lid on, I’m guessing 40 minutes.
