Zucchini Lasagna



Ingredients:
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey
  • Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 or 4 small zucchini sliced lengthwise
  • 24 oz of low fat or 1% cottage cheese 
  • 1 jar of no sugar added spaghetti sauce
  • Non fat or low fat mozzarella cheese

Directions:
  • Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine onion, ground turkey, salt, pepper, garlic powder in a skillet and brown turkey until no longer pink.
  • Layer Zucchini in the bottom of your pan, then spread a layer of cottage cheese, follow that with a layer of ground turkey mixture, spread a layer of sauce on top.
  • Repeat this over again.  Then layer one final row of zucchini on top and cover with sauce and a little sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.

  • Cover with foil and bake in the oven for approximately 1 hour.
  • Remove the foil and continue to bake for 10 more minutes then remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.


Yes it will be a little bit runny due to the water in the zucchini, sauce and the cottage cheese.  I used a slotted spoon to scoop out the lasagna which allows the liquids to stay in the dish.
