This easy paleo recipe is quick to make, and it makes for excellent leftovers. I make this any season and it is terrific for an outdoor barbecue as a side dish option. I love the option of my paleo lasagna with boar or beef as it really tastes 100% different depending on which protein is used. Boar is a “must try at least once” type of meat. This dish is totally delicious and packed with a ton of fiber and micro-nutrients! A real nutrient-dense meal that’s fulfilling without the carbs. We all love it!
If you’d care to add cheese to your lasagna like my paleo husband who eats goat and sheep cheese, go ahead and add some to the top but do it after you remove it from the oven. Of course if you are a real cheese lover, add it between the layers!
