Shrimp Lasagna with Vegetable

Lasagna can be made in numerous ways and this way is one very healthy recipe. Shrimp is good for us with very little fat and tons of protein, and we all know how good vegetables are for us, and that we should be eating a minimum of three to five servings of vegetables and fruits daily. A delicious shrimp and veggie lasagna can be a healthier choice for a meal than traditional lasagna which is typically high in both calories and fat.

Even if you are not necessarily a seafood lover per se, there is a good chance you might like shrimp, as it is a very popular seafood choice. It is tasty but not overpowering as some seafood can be. If you happen to be a vegetarian, this is one dish you will want to experiment with and could possibly become one of your favorites.

If you do not do much cooking and think this may be too difficult to make, rest assured that it will not be too hard if you just have all the ingredients you need on hand.

Photo Description:

This is really a simple recipe to make-it just may look a bit complicated since there are a number of ingredients, but most of those are just a variety of vegetables so do not be afraid to try this out. If your shrimp and vegetable lasagna does not look identical to the photo that is ok, or if you would like you can place the vegetables around the lasagna noodles to more closely match the picture. However, remember this is not just about a picture…this is about a delicious and very healthy dinner to enjoy!
