About this Recipe

By: Christina Hills

Lasagna feels so much like an American dish, I don’t know if this should be categorized as Italian or American!

This is the recipe for my potato lasagna that I adapted from a you tube video. You can get many of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s.  If that is where you shop. I got the idea from this video on YouTube (but I don’t add spinach).  Scroll below to see the video

I really like the Pomi brand of tomatoes for the top of the lazagna, but you can use anything.

  • Note in this picture only 1/2 of the top has cheese. I do this to make it lower cal for me, while my family gets to enjoy the cheesy other side

Notes

This feeds 4 people very well, and is great as leftovers.  (Since I am trying to reduce my cheese intake, I only put cheese on 1/2 of the lasagna to make it lower cal for me)

Inspired by the Video Below

This recipe was inspired by this YouTube video I found a while ago.  The only problem with the video is that you CANNOT make this in 20 min of cook time!  It takes 90 min
