Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Lasagna (Ham Pasta) – IF

WP_20150507_001I made this recipe last night for the family. It was such a hit that Brooke said I couldn’t make it again — too good. She said the cream cheese layer was her favorite. I liked the combination of ground beef and Italian sausage, which we have high quality ones in Iowa.  For a lower carb count, simply use ground beef.  You might reduce the net carb count by 2g per slice.
