Noodleless Lasagna

Faux noodles make this terrific lasagna low carb.



  1. Wash and cut off both ends of zucchini.
  2. Use a peeler to make thin slices of the zucchini. When you get to the seeds, flip over and peel from other side because the seeds don't like to cooperate!
  3. Brown the ground beef and add sauce.
  4. Mix egg, cottage cheese and parmesan cheese in a medium bowl.
  5. Put down a thin layer of the sauce and meat in the bottom of a 9x9" pan. Make a thin layer of zucchini on top, then a layer of the cheese and egg mixture, followed by a layer of zucchini. Repeat layering until the pan is almost full and the top layer is the sauce and meat mixture.
  6. Spread shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
  7. Bake on 350 °F (175 °C) for 45 minutes.
  8. Let sit for 30 minutes before serving.

sounds good, I'm going to use the "no sugar added" sauce in mine!

This was SO good. I reduced the amount of cheese and used fat free cottage cheese. I also added garlic and dill to the meat while it browned. Yummy!!

You can also substitute zucchini with eggplant.

I didnt cut it into thin slices since I dont have a peeler but the zucchini still came out nice and a little crunchy. It soaks flavor well.

what size jar of pasta sauce? I made it with half of a 28 ounce jar of sauce. The casserole was better the next day when most of the liquid from the zucchini absorbed.
