low carb zucchini rolls 

Here is a great alternative when you have a lasagna craving , but you're following a low carb lifestyle or you simply would like a lighter version . This is a vegetarian one, but you can add additional protein if you want whether plant or animal. You can double the recipe to have extra to freeze and eat later . I hope you can give this a try and enjoy it with loved ones. ;)
