I was given the recipe many months ago by a fellow medifaster named Kat. I was part of a support group called Oct'Opers on http://www.mymedifast.com/ in which October was the month everyone began their journey with Medifast. I saved the recipe and I am now finally making it! Why did I wait soooo long? It was sooo good! It is one of those cheesy dishes that uses only cheese as the lean, but I never seem to mind those recipes because I am a cheese lover you just need to watch the sodium. I also love green beans so this dish tastes very delicious to me. I know it isn't the same as regular lasagna but it is definitely a good substitute if you are craving it. Keep in mind to try and use 2% low fat cheese rather than fat free cheese because it melts better and won't taste as rubbery. Another choice to add to your lean and green meals!
