I am so excited about this recipe. Before today if you would have told me to try zucchini lasagna I might have given you a dirty look or laughed in your face. But my friend Fenne and I have decided to eat less carbs so we’ve been trying to come up with recipes that we love but with less carbs.
So we decided on zucchini lasagna. Not only is this beautiful recipe low carb but it is also low fat. So this gorgeous lasagna is what we came up with. It has zucchini in place of noodles, a delicious tomato sauce with ground beef and amazing spices, mushrooms and low fat mozzarella cheese, ricotta and Parmesan cheese.
The truth is pretty much whenever you give me something with cheese I’m bound to love it, but I really thought I wouldn’t like zucchini in place of noodles because I really love my good old fashioned lasagna. So we made this together. It’s so much fun cooking with a friend, after all that’s why I love cooking, so you can enjoy and share great food with friends and family. There’s nothing better.
As soon as this came out of the oven I knew it was going to be a winner. I mean look at this lasagna it looks simply amazing. We could hardly wait to dig into this, but we had to endure to take pictures so that I could share with all of you, of course. When we finally tried it, we were in love. You could not tell this was a healthy lasagna and that there were no noodles. The zucchini and mushroom kind of add that pasta texture, without making you feel bloated at the end of the meal. Trust me, you will love this, you will not miss those lasagna noodles at all.
