Skinnytaste Turkey Pastelon (Sweet Plantain Lasagna)

2 years ago

I live in a predominantly hispanic area so I`ve grown up incorporating spanish dishes into my palette since I was a kid. Prior to joining Weight Watchers I`ve had my share of pastelon, although to save time we`d make Canoas - which are stuffed sweet plantains. The plantains were peeled, cut down the middle, lightly fried, then placed into a casserole dish, topped with a ground beef mixture, topped with cheese and baked off in the oven for the plantain to cook through. The `lazy mans lasagna` of pastelon.

As an avid fan of the Skinnytaste website/cookbook I`ve had the Skinnytaste Turkey Pastelon (Sweet Plantain Lasagna) dish pinned and printed for quite some time. My boyfriend at the time wasn`t a fan of cheese, so avoiding having to make two dishes for dinner I opted to just not make it. That is until I stumbled upon the recipe again and decided I was going to prep it for dinner one night.

Prepping the dish was quite simple. Although I find after assembling began that I should have sliced my bananas thinner to make for a `lasagna` effect but since they weren`t thin enough I only had enough bananas to cover 2 layers worth instead of 3. That fact aside it didn`t cut back on the taste or flavor.

I have to say this dish is absolutely delicious! It`s flavorful, packed with delicious flavors, topped with a wonderful cheese and egg mixture which truly does help hold the dish together. It`s filling, packed with protein and is satisfying enough to have alongside a side salad for dinner. I shared the dish with my parents and they both equally enjoyed it - so it was undoubtedly a crowd pleaser and something I will be making again when the craving strikes!

If you`d like to make the dish yourself, you can find the recipe on the Skinnytaste website:
