Protein Noodle Enchilada Lasagna
I’ve worked at restaurants since I was 15. The jobs were hard but I loved them! Opening a keto restaurant is a dream of mine! I’m thinking a lasagna restaurant or an Italian restaurant called Mama Maria’s!
At my Mama Maria’s restaurant I would have a lasagna section on the menu!
I have so many versions of my protein noodle lasagna that I would serve!
Here are some of my fan favorite lasagna recipes!
4. Protein Noodle Enchilada lasagna
I once adored going to Mexican restaurants for enchiladas (which is a huge hit in the book Keto Restaurant Favorites). But when Craig lost his job, and we couldn’t afford to go out to eat, I started cooking our favorite restaurant meals at home! Not only was it a great way to save money, but we both lost a lot of weight eating healthier versions at home!
