Have you ever arrived in the grocery store parking lot without any ideas of what you want to cook? That was me today. After church, I sat in the Aldi’s parking lot going through zucchini recipes on Pinterest. I wanted something simple with minimal ingredients. I found this recipe for Zucchini Lasagna here.
1 pound ground turkey
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 chopped onion
24 ounces tomato sauce ( I used Prego Meat Sauce)
2 tablespoons basil
3 medium zucchini, sliced 1/8″ thick
15 ounces ricotta
16 ounces mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup parmesan
1 large egg
Salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground meat in a large skillet over medium heat with onion, garlic, basil, and salt & pepper. Add sauce and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine ricotta, parmesan, 12 ounces mozzarella, and egg in a bowl and mix. Arrange zucchini slices into the base of a 9×13 baking dish. Layer with half of meat sauce and cheese mixture. Repeat layering and top with final layer of zucchini slices.
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes.
