A Healthy and Easy Lasagna Chock-Full of Superfoods
Jennifer IserlohI'm sure you've heard the term "superfood" before -- newsmakers are always looking for a way to add pizazz to everyday things by using words like "super." That being said, foods like spinach, broccoli, and pumpkin really are supercharged with certain nutrients, justly earning them the title.
I'm all for getting more nutrition in your meals, but being a chef, I've gotta have something tasty too! So I'll prove it's possible to get both with this super easy, no-boil pumpkin lasagna. Turning superfoods into something drool-worthy isn't hard. Just start with a recipe you love -- take lasagna, for example -- and work your superfood right in.
Pumpkin is a cold weather favorite, but it also happens to be one of the healthiest foods out there. It's bursting with vitamin A, a vitamin that can boost immunity and keep colds at bay. It also contains high levels of other important nutrients and minerals like vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
