A frugal-minded recipe for Type Os like myself, who love lasagna. The ingredients are probably fine for others, and may be changed accordingly (e.g.: wheat pasta may be OK for some). I shop for rice noodles at Oriental markets, as they tend to be less expensive than health food store non-wheat pastas; but the two may not be equally enriched with vitamins, so concentrate on thesauces, etc. This mixes carbs with proteins, which some may not tolerate.
