FREAKING YUM, Jen. I used ground turkey that I spiced like pork sausage would be spiced, homemade marinara sauce (The Best Marinara Sauce Yet, which is also from this site), whole wheat lasagna noodles and I used "trim" cottage cheese instead of ricotta only because a)we don't care for ricotta and b)I'm quite cheap. My egg white was from an organic egg. I had a few bites but my family inhaled the rest....even my littlest who LOVES lasagna. He couldn't tell there was zucchini in it!!! No leftovers. None. I'm low on money so I served this with homemade cornbread but next time, I'll be sure to serve this with garlic bread to sop up some of the sauce from the plate. I'll for sure make this again. I'm impressed.
This was excellent! Will definitely make this again! I added onion and garlic (because I nearly always do) and I had a bunch of cherry tomatoes that really needed to be used up so I added them quartered, but they didn't alter the taste much. I used sweet italian sausage, removed the casings. It really tasted great, we all loved it. Thanks jennkl!
Delicious! I made a couple substitutions based on what I had on hand- no ricotta so used cream cheese(not a perfect substitute but it's still tasty- cottage cheese would be a better sub), lower fat mozzarella and sausage, organic pasta sauce (lower sodium) and whole wheat noodles. I also added garlic to the sausage/zucchini. If it was this good with the healthier substitutions I bet the original recipe is to die for!
I made a large pan of this last week for family and was a big hit. The only thing different was that I added more sauce (I don't like dry lasagna) for when I reheated it later....I love left overs. First of all the flavor is excellent and when you reheated it, it tasted even better. It is a very filling and satisfying dish, which is great for the cooler weather coming.
Loved it! The kids had no idea there was zucchini in it, and they ate their entire servings (even the picky kid). It doesn't happen often so THANK you :)
Really Yummy! I used ground Turkey and diced up onion and minced garlic. I substituted low fat cottage cheese for the ricotta. I used a whole egg.
Honestly the best lasagna ever! Way better then all the difficult lasagna's out there and love that you can have zucchini in it. Super easy and definately in my dinner rotation!
I used spiced turkey instead of Sausage and it was great!
