Nutritional values

This lighter take on the traditional Italian recipe supplies important proteins which our body needs as building material for cells, muscles, messenger substances, and antibodies. The meat also contains plenty of B vitamins, which we need for strong nerves and an efficient brain.

The lasagna can also be made vegetarian friendly! For this, replace the minced beef with 4 ounce of soy granulate. Pour 10 ounce of boiling vegetable stock over it and let it swell for ten minutes, then process it further like the minced meat. A Mediterranean salad goes well with the lasagna.
