Lasagne is typically a super unhealthy dish as it’s usually packed with a bunch of unhealthy ingredients. But the great thing about Italian food is that there are lots of different ways to make it much healthier.
Take this Healthy Chicken Lasagne, for instance. Replacing beef with chicken is definitely advantageous for anyone looking to cut down on red meat, and using passata instead of a typical Dolmio style lasagne sauce removes the need for any added refined sugar.
Using quark and fat free greek yoghurt instead of an unhealthy cheese sauce is also a great idea to keep the calories down. All in all, a chicken lasagne is pretty simple to make and definitely worth a try.
