Zucchini Lasagna

Zucchini lasagna is a great, healthy way to use up all that zucchini that is in your garden this year. Here in Utah, few things grow as prolific as zucchini. Just about every garden in the neighborhood is full of it. And the best part? People are always willing to share. Here is not only one, but two recipes that will help you use up all of that beautiful zucchini.
 
I love this Zucchini Lasagna that is a delicious way to get in those veggies. I’ve also added some Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies because chocolate makes everything better. It’s a fun dessert that the entire family can enjoy and not even know they’re getting some veggies in at the same time.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1.  Spread a thin layer of sauce on bottom of 13 x 9 casserole dish
  2. Preheat oven to 350
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, scrape thin slices of zucchini one at a time, until it is no longer scraping in whole pieces. You will get about 15-20 out of each zucchini. Set aside
  4. Mix the cottage, ricotta, and parmesan cheese. Add egg, garlic and salt and pepper
  5. Make a T with two slices of zucchini. Then make another T just opposite so a basket pattern is formed. Place about 2 TBSP of filling in each zucchini “basket”. Then fold up the zucchini and place seam side down on casserole dish. Repeat until filling and zucchini is gone
  6. Pour sauce on the top of each basket and in the dish. Depending on how saucy you want it, use a little more or less. Top with ½ cup mozzarella cheese
  7. Cover with foil. Cook for 30 mins
  8. Take off foil, turn broiler to low. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly
