I will admit I love a good garlic bread to slather up any juice that remains on my plate once I eat my pasta.

The cravings will pass after a while I just needed to hold strong, is what I kept telling myself.

I started testing out recipes in the kitchen, and I came up with this recipe. It is like a traditional lasagna but instead of pasta, I used zucchini slices to replace it.

I couldn’t even really tell there was no pasta, and it tasted absolutely delicious! All while sticking to my diet!
