This keto eggplant lasagna recipe is the perfect low-carb, gluten-free alternative to traditional lasagna. Rather than using pasta to layer between meat and cheese, this lasagna recipe uses eggplant. Eggplant mimics the texture and thickness of pasta sheets, without adding nearly as many carbs. Plus, eggplants are packed full of vitamins and minerals! That means you can eat savory, delicious lasagna as part of a healthy diet!
