  • 12 brown rice lasagna noodles

I have never heard of these brown rice lasagna noodles before, but I think regular lasagna noodles or the whole wheat variety could be substituted here based on your preference. The sweet potatoes lend a surprising seasonal twist to the classic Italian dish, while also adding great nutrition! I can't wait to try it!
