    2 c. spaghetti sauce
    3/4 lb. lean beef

    1/2 t. garlic powder

    3 T. parmesan cheese

Directions

Cut the zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Salt the slices and set aside for 30 minutes to allow them to weep out some of the water in them. While they drain, saute the beef and onion a few minutes to brown, then add the spaghetti sauce and spices. Cook uncovered 15 minutes or so to thicken up the sauce. Pat the zucchini dry with paper towels. Put on glass dish, cover and microwave for 5 minutes on high to precook slightly. Spray an 8 x 8 inch pan with cooking spray. Spread about 3 T. of sauce on the bottom, then layer in 1/3 of the zucchini, 1/3 of the sauce and 1/3 of the mozarella cheese. Repeat the layers two more times. Top with parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or untill bubbly and top is browned a little. Let rest about 10 minutes before cutting into 4 pieces. Serves 4 generously.

  • Made this tonight in a 9X13 pan instead of 8X8 - it worked great! My hubby said he liked it better than regular lasagna! Sweating the zukes with salt helped to make it less watery. - 7/15/09

  • Very good. I left out the salt, but that probably wasn't a good idea. It was a bit watery. Next time I'll follow the directions. - 9/10/08
