Zucchini Lasagna



You won’t miss the pasta here – hubby actually liked it better than regular lasagna.

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb pork sausage, casing removed
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red chili pepper flakes
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1 lb Zuks, slicked 1/8 thick
  • 16 oz ricotta
  • 1/4 c grated Parmesan 
  • 1 egg
  • 16 mozzarella 

In a large skillet, heat oil and add onions and garlic cook until soft. Add pork and break up as it cooks, season with salt pepper and chili flakes, stir in tomatoes and simmer.

Grill zuk slices over medium heat. Set aside.

Combine ricotta, Parm and egg.

In a 12×12 pan, spread 1/3 sauce, layer with Zuks, spread 1/3 cheese mixture, 1/3 mozz and repeat.

Preheat oven to 325. Bake for 30 min covered with foil, remove foil and bake 20 more minutes to brown cheese.

Serves 8 – 12.
