Dinner tonight was a zucchini lasagna with ground beef. I loved it! 😍
Recipe 👇👇 20 ounces zucchini (about 2 large)ends sliced off and discarded
1 pound extra lean ground beef
15 ounces can tomatoe sauce or puree
1 cup finely chopped onion (about 1 small)
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
3teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
🔹Heat a high-sided pan over medium heat until hot. Add olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
🔹Add ground beef to the pan, breaking it apart as it cooks. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
🔹Add tomato sauce, stirring it in. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then gradually reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Simmer for about 5 minutes to thicken the sauce, stirring occasionally.
🔹Add oregano, salt, and cayenne. Stir until well-mixed. Remove from heat and set aside.
🔹Preheat the oven to 375 F. Prepare an 8x8 inch bakimg dish
🔹Slice each zucchini along its length into 1/8 inch thick strips.
🔹Arrange zucchini slices along the bottom of the baking dish so that they are slightly overlapping in a criss-cross pattern. Evenly pour about half of the meat sauce over the zucchini. Add about 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese on top of the meat sauce.
🔹Repeat with another zucchini layer, a meat sauce layer, and a cheese layer.
🔹Top with remaining zucchini slices. Add another 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese on top of the zucchini.
🔹Bake at 375 F until the lasagna is golden brown on top and bubbling, about 45 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes to allow the lasagna to set and cease bubbling before slicing.
