Lasagna alla Bolognese Protein Pancakes

I’m Italian so I have passion for great-tasting food. But I avoid eating pizza and pasta with a lot of carbs and I prefer to use protein powder instead of flour. I eat protein pancakes every day but I prepare them in different ways. This is the time for “Lasagna alla Bolognese”. It’s a dish extremely popular in Italy. My recipe is a low-carb, low-fat and high in protein Lasagna!
