The winter months tend to be full of heavy, carbohydrates dishes that fill your body and keep you and your home warm. Of course these dishes are so delicious, but they are very high in calories too.
So, why not to light up your comforting food recipes? This is what I did with this healthy, light and skinny lasagna rolls. If comforting food can be healthy if you use the right ingredients. You don’t need to use the high fat and lots of carbs products there are out there.
You can always find better quality and low fat cheese to buy. For this recipe I used part-skim milk ricotta and mozzarella to reduce the amount of fat and calories of this dish.
I also used whole wheat lasagna for the extra fiber you get when you cook with whole wheat ingredients. So, I made skinny lasagna rolls without sacrificing in flavour, of course!I have to say that this lasagna was very delicious and this is not only my opinion. I invited some friends to try it and they love it. However, I found this recipe were even more flavourful the next day 😉 So, make it on the weekend and have the leftovers for lunch during the week.
When it’s really cold outside, stay warm and cozy inside eating this skinny lasagna rolls, because why spend lots of money at a restaurant when you can make this comforting meal?
