Roasted Zucchini Low Carb Lasagna

Yum! Found this recipe on Livestrong.com and decided to have a mini healthy dinner party (mini as in two guests) to try it out. I HIGHLY recommend it if you LOVE veggies! I’m going to make it for my friends when up visiting at home! 🙂

Ingredients:

8 Large Zucchini

4 cups Spinach- frozen

2 cups Portobello Mushroom

2 Cups Trader Giotto’s Marinara Sauce

2 cups Non-fat Cottage Cheese

1/2 cup Basil, Fresh

1 medium Yellow Onion

1 tsp Fresh Oregano

4 Garlic Gloves

1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Directions

Heat oven to 375 Degrees

Thaw spinach and drain liquid- set aside.

using a mandolin slice (slice vertical) zucchini length wise into long strips. Place on paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Let stand 15-20 minutes then blot moisture.

Arrange zucchini on baking sheet and bake until slightly browned.

Slice yellow onion and saute.

Mix non fat cottage cheese with spices, herbs and garlic.

In a baking dish- spray with non stick cooking spray.

Layer the zucchini, onion, spinach, 1/3 of non fat cottage cheese mixture, marinara sauce. Repeat until there is a layer of zucchini on top.

Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove foil, sprinkle wit Parmesan cheese and bake again until cheese is a bit melted.

Remove from oven, let set for 10 minutes and enjoy!

This recipe sounds pretty complicated and for the first time Kelli and I had a hard time getting it to set and working all of the pieces HOWEVER it TASTES GREAT!!! I recomend it, 4 stars (4 for taste -1 for prep..but you know I’m a slacker when it comes to preparation!) 🙂

      1. Hi! Thanks for reading! I’m sorry..i combined them in with the cheese paste that you create. I have in my second batch separated them out in just an additional layer, but I don’t think it matters because it gets a bit messy! Hope you enjoy it!
