Lower fat, low carb lasagne with zucchini "noodles" instead of pasta noodles

Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini Noodle Lasagne

1/2 lb 90% lean ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
3 large mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, minced
170 grams fit active part skim mozzarella
1 cup sargento part skim ricotta cheese
1 large egg, whole
1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/4" slices
250 g marinara sauce

Recipe Directions for Zucchini Noodle Lasagne

  1. Brown round meat on medium to medium high heat. Drain if needed. To the meat mixture add diced onions and allow to soften for 5 minutes. Add in garlic, stir for 30 seconds. Incorporate tomato sauce, mushrooms, and Italian seasonings with meat. Reduce heat and allow to simmer stirring occasionally for about 15 minutes.

  2. Slice zucchini into thin horizontal sheets similar to lasagna pasta. Lay out and pat dry on paper towels. Set aside.

  3. Combine ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan and eggs in a bowl until mixed well. Set aside.

  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  5. Check meat sauce for flavoring, adjust if necessary (adding sugar to reduce acidity per taste preference). Once the meat sauce liquid has reduced remove from heat and line up all ingredients to assemble the lasagna.

  6. In an 8x8 baking dish combine one half of each ingredient in layers as follows:

  7. Zucchini slices

  8. Ricotta mixture

  9. Meat sauce

  10. Mozzarella

  11. Repeat.

  12. Bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly throughout and cheese is dark golden brown. Rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
