We ended up doing Level 1 at lunch – its only been a week since we did it last and boy was it hard!  We were sweating bullets by the end!

  4. you are one ridiculously amazing cook!!! That looks awesome! I never thought to put quinoa into lasagna, but I might have to give it a shot now. 🙂

  5. That looks so good! It has to be a protein powerhouse as well!

  6. Great way to use Quinoa, it looks awesome!

  7. What a great idea for lasagna! I love quinoa. Have you ever tried red quinoa? I bet that would make it look really interesting.

  8. Without the pasta, this would be a GLUTEN FREE dish. Be careful to either suggest without the pasta or to mark this as a dish that is not celiac friendly. Lovely photos!
