Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
16 ouncesminced beef
1 cup marinara sauce (homemade or store-bought)
A large zucchini
10 ounces ricotta cheese
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
Step 1 – First you will need to preheat your over to 350 degrees F. Next, you can peel the zucchini into strips. Make sure you don’t use the seedy core. Sprinkle salt over the strips and then put it aside so it can sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, you can pat the zucchini dry with paper towels as moisture will have been extracted.
Step 2. Gently brown the ground beef in a large frying pan and then add the marinara sauce. You can add pepper and salt to taste.
Step 3. It’s time to build the lasagna in a small non-stick casserole dish. Start with a layer of meat, then zucchini, and ricotta. The next layer will be meat, zucchini, ricotta, then top it with mozzarella.
Step 4. Cover the casserole dish tightly with tin foil and place it in the oven to bake for 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes is done, remove the tin foil and broil for two to three minutes. You want to give it just enough time to brown the top but not burn it.
Step 5. Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes to cool before serving.
