Low Sodium Vegetable Lasagna

Low Sodium Vegetable Lasagna

Lasagna, in general, is not usually part of a Cardiac Diet. But here, we cut the sodium and saturated fat by using "no salt added" spaghetti sauce and fat-free or part-skim cheeses. The result is delicious and hearty enough to satisfy pasta lovers. This is also a great freezer meal that can be made ahead.
