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?)
