Easy Zucchini Lasagna

low carb alternative to lasagna :)

If I can make it, then it’s easy.

I just made this for dinner tonight, after seeing a few different recipes for it online.

This is the vegetarian, low carb version.

You can make a zucchini and meat version, or a zucchini and pasta version, but here I don’t use pasta or meat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of garlic (I used the kind in a jar)
  • garlic powder or minced garlic (I like garlic)
  • black pepper- to taste
  • parsley- to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • basil- to taste
  • oregano- to taste
  • that spicy Italian red flaked stuff you sprinkle on your food (what is it called??) to taste
  • 1 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1 jar of plain, vegetarian spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small block of mozzarella cheese
  • 2 average size zucchini
  • 3 large stalks of fresh broccoli

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In medium bowl, mix spaghetti sauce, spices, and onion.
  3. Slice the zucchini into long slices or round slices (I did round). Chop broccoli into small bits.
  4. Slice mozzarella cheese into strips or use shredded.
  5. In 9 X 11 pan (I used non-stick) spread the olive oil along the bottom of pan.
  6. Spread one layer of sliced zucchini on top of olive oil.
  7. Sprinkle Asiago and cheddar cheese on top of zucchini. Spread layer of sauce on top.
  8. Sprinkle broccoli, more Asiago and cheddar cheese on this first layer.
  9. Then spread another layer of sliced zucchini on top of this (this should use up both zucchinis).
  10. Cover with sauce.
  11. Spread mozzarella slices on the the top of the whole dish.
  12. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven (375 degrees) for 30 minutes.

Serves 8

Voila!

Low carb dinner with lots of yummy veggies. One recipe I looked at, which follows this one closely, gave the following figures:

297 calories per serving

    Okay, my favorite is “that spicy red flaked stuff you sprinkle on your food” I think you mean Crushed Red Pepper?
