Perfect Sweet Potato Lasagna

Its definitely lasagna season … cold, rainy and in some places snowy, I’m in spain and we are having a crazy cold snap, So lasagna, soups, stews and anything slower cooked is on the menu and playing around with recipes has been a blast.!

This  sweet potato lasagna was Sunday dinner and it was absolutely perfect !

Im not a fan of lasagna noodles so replacing them with sweet potato is a serious game changer around here. 

Unfortunately my photos didn’t turn out nearly as good as this sweet potato lasagna ….but whatever it has melted cheese and really thats all that counts ! 

*When using ricotta cheese try and get the part skimmed as it doesn’t have as much liquid in it
