    the #RETOX Lasagna:

    This lasagna is light & protein packed. The sauce, recipe below, is 80% vegetables, and I use 2 different types of cheeses instead of ricotta, bechemel and maozzarella so you can enjoy an epic lasagna without feeling heavy after.

    -Make my #RETOX Beef Ragu Sauce 
    -Take a Pyrex Oven pan and layer a thin layer of sauce on the bottom.
    -Add a layer of No-Cook Lasagna Pasta Sheets
    -Add a layer of sauce
    -Add a layer of grated parmesean and pecorino cheese
    -Add another layer of No-Cook Lasagna Pasta Sheets
    -Repeat until the top of the pan
    -‘Close’ the lasanga with a layer of sauce and AMPLE grated parmeasean and pecorino.
    -Bake in oven at 425 until the top layer is melted and crunchy
    -Let sit for 20 minutes
    -Serve and enjoy!

    the #RETOX Bolognese: 

     Honestly, what&rsquos better than a great Ragu in winter? This #RETOX version is almost all vegetables, too, making it both light & nourishing. 

     -Add 4 cloves chopped garlic to a large pan with olive oil on medium heat 

    -Add 1 chopped white onion -Let simmer until onion is soft 

    -Add 2 large carrots & 3 celery sticks chopped 

    -Stir & let simmer on medium.

    -When carrots soft add 10 chopped Roma tomatoes 

    -Add 5 pinches of salt, optional hot pepper flakes, optional black pepper, stir, and cover with lid. 

    -After 10 minutes add 1 large can of crushed tomatoes (or just to double fresh tomatoes) 

    -Cover with a lid, stir every few minutes, and let simmer on medium for 10 minutes. 

     -Add 1 bag of frozen peas. Let peas get medium soft. 

     -Add 1lb of ground grass fed organic beef. Make sure to break up the beef well with your fork or spatula. Cover with a lid and let simmer for 30 minutes. OPTIONAL: keep it vegan & skip the meat! 

    -When ready serve alone, or over your favorite pasta. This recipe makes enough for a few people for many days, so freeze or save what&rsquos left over for next time!

     (PS did you notice the one pan no mess #RETOX style?)

    GF Cacio & Pepe! Boil your fave pasta, strain & put back in same pot w/ ½ a cup of the water it was cooked in. Then add ample olive oil, grated Parmesan, grated pecorino, fresh ground black pepper, maybe some more evoo. You can even make this with normal pasta (and it may actually taste better 😬 but I was hosting GF guests 😇) . Enjoy! #RETOX
