Vegetarian Variation to the Recipe

Lasagne.JPG

Vegetarianism has grown more popular in recent years, and pork, chicken, beef and other meats are sometimes substituted with "mock meats". Tofu, seitan and a few other alternatives are most commonly used as replacement for these meats. Below is the vegetarian version of the chicken and zucchini lasagne recipe. This recipe is a low-fat version as well so it does not contain any cheeses.
