Zucchini Noodles Lasagna

Submitted by: IAMDESIGNERKT


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Zucchini “Noodles” Lasagna

    Sauce (makes 3 cups):
    1-28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
    1 small onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    16 oz. ground turkey, 93% lean
    2 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped

    For the “noodles” and lasagna:
    2 medium zucchini*, end trimmed
    1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    1/4 tsp olive oil
    Salt, pepper to taste



Directions

Sauce: Sauté onion and red-pepper flakes in a large, nonstick saucepan, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender, about 8 minutes. Add turkey; cook, breaking up any large pieces, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmering until thick, about 20 minutes. Stir in oregano and add salt to taste. Let cool.

Lasagna: Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice zucchini lengthwise into thin strips (about 1/8” thick) using a mandoline or sharp knife. Place 5 or 6 zucchini slices, overlapping slightly, in the bottom of an 8” square baking dish. Top with 1 cup of sauce. Dot with 1/4 cup ricotta. Repeat twice with zucchini, remaining sauce, and 1/2 cup of ricotta, alternating direction of zucchini. Top with remaining zucchini, alternating direction; brush with oil. Dot with remaining 1/4 cup ricotta. Season with pepper. Bake, uncovered, until lasagna bubbles up and top browns, 50 to 60 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into 4 pieces. Garnish with oregano.

*Substitute layers of roasted spaghetti squash
