Zucchini Lasagna

So much zucchini. Some years you end up with much more from your garden than you expect. Zucchini is my big one. What do you do with it all? I hate waste, so I am always looking for new ideas.
Finding new creative recipes is always the key. My favourite is Zucchini Lasagna. This is a great healthy meal that even the kids will enjoy!


  • zucchini-thinly sliced into strips resembling lasagna noodles (I use a mandolin for consistency)
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 lb ground beef-fried and drained
  • 1-2 cups grated cheese (I like mozzarella but use any cheese you have on hand)
  • 1-2 cups mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic- minced
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 onion diced


This recipe is really very simple.
Pre heat your oven to 350. Combine tomato sauce, ground beef , garlic, onion, mushroom and spices in a bowl, or if you are making in advance simmer on low for 30-60 minutes. This brings the flavours out in the sauce.


Layer 1/3 of the zucchini noodles inthe bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Cover zucchini noodles with 1/3 cheese and 1/3 of the sauce. Repeat. Top with remaining zucchini noodles and sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and Parmesan cheese over the top.

Bake for 45 minutes and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Yummy! Great for gluten free diets, or even low card diets. Enjoy!
