Zucchini Noodle Lasagna

So I have been doing Whole 30 and Paleo lately! I feel SO great eating this way, but this week I caved a little bit and added some cheese back into my diet!

I didn't want to add pasta because wheat and grains give me an AWFUL reaction when I re-introduced them! So I took one of my favorite meals and made it slightly healthier :) 

This recipe is pretty easy! The prep takes the longest! I also made my own sauce to cut out the sugars added to past a sauce! The link to the sauce can be found here: Homemade Marinara 

Here is the recipe for the rest! 

4 Zucchini 
1 Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
1 Green Pepper
1 lb Ground Beef 
1 small container of Ricotta cheese 
Mozzerella Cheese

1. Heat oven to 350 and grease 9x13 pan (I used a slightly smaller pan to make it thicker! 
2. Using a mandolin, slice zucchini in long thin slices 
3. In sauce pan, combine chopped onion, garlic, and ground beef. Cook until ground beef is completely browned. 
4. Stir in one egg with ricotta cheese in a small bowl and also Prepare the sauce at this time
5. Layer in the pan Sauce, noodle, ricotta cheese, noodle, beef mixture and green peppers and top with mozzarella cheese 
6. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes and ENJOY


  1. This looks and sounds so good! I'm definitely going to try this! I have an entire container of homemade pasta sauce in my freezer that I need to use and this is perfect. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. I have never tried lasagna with zucchini but it sounds like such a great option! And homemade sauce is the best!
