Instructions

Step 1

For preparing the meat sauce, first you have to heat a large pot over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Add garlic and onion to the pot and saute a few minutes until the garlic is fragrant and onions become translucent.

Step 2

Add in the meat and brown it in the pot until no longer pink and almost cooked through.

Step 3

Add dried oregano, basil, parsley, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir together well. Add in the tomato puree and the canned diced tomatoes, and combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer and continue to cook for about 20 minutes.

Step 4

Then mix Ricotta Cheese, egg, Kalleh Lasagna Processed Cheese, garlic, and dried herbs in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add in 1/2 cup of cooled meat sauce and stir to combine; set aside.

With a sharp knife, slice the zucchinis lengthwise very thinly.

Step 7

Prepare a 9×13-inch casserole dish. First, spread the meat sauce, then put your zucchini slices on top of the sauce. Add a layer of Ricotta filling, and Kalleh Parmesan Powder Cheese. Repeat these layers 2 or 3 times.

Cooking Notes

You can use your favorite cheese; we used Ricotta cheese, sliced Kalleh Lasagna Processed Cheese, and Parmesan cheese.

You can use turkey or chicken instead of lean ground beef.

Put leftover lasagna in a container and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days.

You can freeze unbaked or baked Zucchini Lasagna with plastic wrap and foil for 3 months.

If you don’t like a watery Zucchini Lasagna, you can follow these few tips:

Slice the zucchinis into thinner slices.

Salt the zucchinis and let them sit for 15 minutes, then dry with a paper towel.

Grill the zucchinis for 1 or 2 minutes on each side to reduce the moisture.
