Veggie “noodle” Elk Lasagna

A deliciously creamy, savory and satisfying dish, this veggie noodle lasagna used carrots, zucchini, and potato instead of traditional noodles. This might be my favorite recipe I’ve made lately and I can’t wait to make it again. You know it’s good when J gets bummed I froze two pieces for later because he wanted to eat it aaallll!

Not only do you pack in extra veggies, but you can also skip messing around with expensive gluten-free lasagna noodles or noodles with lots of preservatives and additives.

A mandolin is required for this recipe unless you have ninja-like knife skills. The mandolin will keep your fingers safe while creating veggie strips of equal and symmetrical thickness. This is great for turning veggies into noodles!

Note

If you don't have a misto olive oil sprayer, you can drizzle oil over the carrots and spread across the top with a cooking brush or with your fingers. The oil is there to protect the top layer from burning or drying out during cooking.

You can replace the Kite Hill almond-based cream cheese with a high quality organic ricotta or homemade almond ricotta. 

If you don't have Roma Tomatoes, other tomatoes will work

You can swap out fresh basil for dried basil or Italian seasoning. 

You can use kalamata olives if you don;t have green olives.
