"Don't sacrifice lasagna just because you don't like lasagna. This version packs lots of flavor from Parmesan and Asiago, and is made with few noodles so you low carb dieters can enjoy it, too!" — Lori

1 (6 ounce) can
2 (15 ounce) cans
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
chopped fresh basil

When they posted the recipe, they changed it to say to use the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (I think in some places that is all that is available) but I don't actually use those (I don't like adobo sauce!) I use the plain dried/smoked peppers Careful not to use too many, a couple should do it, as they reconstitute in the sauce, and one small pepper can add a good bit of spice. I hope you all like it; it is a real hit with my family.
this was not good. The spinach in it completely overpowered everything else. I had one piece and couldn't eat it anymore which is a shame because this is an expensive recipe. I made it exactly as stated in the recipe
My friend and I were making some meals to freeze. We made this recipe and we both couldn't wait, so we had it for dinner that night. Both of our families loved it. It was a little time consuming, but definitely worth it. We used ground turkey and turkey sausage and it was delicious! I can't wait to make it again. Also, the recipe does make a lot. We made 2 lasagnas out of the recipe without doubling it. Thank you!
This was so yummy. I am not a big Chipotle fan so I omitted this ingredient and it was still some of the best lasagne I've ever made.
Wonderful! Whole family loved it - even my one year old! Took forever to make - prep time was more like 2 hours if you simmer and brown everything right. Definitely worth it, though. I will absolutely make again! Thanks!
Wow! What a great lasagna, full of flavor! This takes a little extra time but you will not be disappointed with it. Do use a dish deeper than a standard 9x13 because it makes a pan FULL of lasagna. If you do not have a deeper one use a cookie sheet covered in tinfoil on the next rack down under your 9x13. I followed the direcitons exactly except I sliced my zucchini into rounds instead of lengthwise. When I read the reviews for this the recipe submitter actually uses dried chipotle chilis but I could not find these at my local shopping places so I did use the chipotles in adobo. I used 2 but next time will add 3 or 4. They add a nice spiciness to the lasagna. I served this with Lime Iced Tea and Harvest Salad from this site and store-bought garlic bread. This recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing Lori :)
Beyond excellent! So much flavor! Like someone else said, I'll never boil lasagna noodles again --that was the bonus. For our tastes, used 1 T. of the chipolte chili in adobo sauce (about 2 chilis), 3/4 t. sea salt, 3/4 t. black pepper and it was just perfect. Also, used the diced tomatoes as others suggested. Had to use dried spices; 1 t. basil and 2 t. oregano. Used 2 containers of mushrooms, Neufchatel in place of cream cheese and a slightly bigger bag of spinach. Didn't have Asiago so doubled the amount of Parmesan. I don't think it made a bit of difference using what I had on hand. This was absolutely to die for! This made one 9 x 13" and one 9x9".
I am picky about my lasagnas... but this was AWESOME! I was a little skeptical of the cream cheese, but it was absolutely perfect!! My husband doesn't like leftovers, but he can't wait to take this in his lunch to work tomorrow! I'll definitely make this again!
