Lean & Green Zucchini Lasagna

  • 2 cup fresh whole Tomatoes sliced
  • 1 1/4 lbs Lean Ground Beef

Lean & Green Zucchini Lasagna


  1. Preheat oven to 425*F.
  2. Make zucchini lasagna noodles with a mandolin or a sharp knife. To make the lasagna “noodles,” cut the zucchini into 1/4-inch slices lengthwise. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and set aside for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. While the noodles are setting aside, combine the ground beef (you may brown it before combining), pepper, cream cheese, and remaining salt in a mixing dish.
  4. Place the sliced zucchini in a casserole dish and dry it with a paper towel. Cover the zucchini with a thin layer of each: ground beef, cream cheese, and add a layer of basil leaves and tomato sliced.
  5. You may repeat Steps 1 through 3 until all of the layer ingredients have been used up. The final layer should be zucchini slices. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top as the grand finale.
  6. Place on a oven rack and bake for 30 minutes at 425°F. Cut into 4 equal pieces when cooked.
