One of our favorite recipes is a Zucchini Lasagna I whipped up while trying to "Clean Eat!" I've shared it with a few friends who have made it for their family's and they all loved it! So, I figured you all might, too. I basically just took my regular pasta lasagna and used zucchini instead.
Zucchini sliced thinly (will be used instead of pasta)
Hamburger or ground turkey
Tomato sauce- your favorite, or make your own. (I make my own)
Prepare your sauce, if you make your own. Brown your meat (I add my onions and garlic, here) and then layer your pan, like you would a normal lasagna. I only put cheese on top, though. I put a small amount of tomato sauce on the bottom and top it with a layer of zucchini. Then add some meat mixture, followed by sauce. Repeat until you're at the top of your pan. I get about 3 completed layers. Add cheese.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and zucchini is tender.
Please note: Zucchini lets out a lot of water, so your dish may become watery, just drain it out the side of your pan and into your sink. Easy fix!
