The Familiar Dinner with a Small but Mighty Tweak

There's only one swap in this alternative lasagna from Keto Lunches by Stephanie Pederson—but it introduces a vegetable you may not have considered putting into the dish before. The recipe has you use kale leaves instead of sheets of pasta, though you can also sub in chard. The trick to making this sometimes-tough vegetable tender is to give it a quick dunk in boiling water, so the leaves are bright and just wilted. Then, you let them dry while you prepare the sauce ingredients, which will be well-known to any lasagna lover: Italian sausage, marinara sauce and basil. Alternate layers of kale, sauce and grated Parmesan and shredded mozzarella in a dish, and bake. It's wonderfully filling—and a serving has just 15 grams of carbs (compared to about 30 grams in traditional versions).
