Zucchini Lasagna

My parents didnt grow or buy zucchini. I dont think i ever tasted zucchini until well into my 20's. But they are everywhere! So, what to do? I figured why not lasagna! And thank goodness gigi is so sharp because this was delicious! Sadly, i dont have a picture, but no worries, you can do it without one.

1 large or 2 small zucchini - sliced lengthwise (i did this the day before. You can even do it 2 days before...)
1 cloves of garlic - or 2 tsp already minced from a jar
1 pound ground turkey
1.5 jars of marinara sauce
1 16 oz container fat free ricotta cheese
1 egg beaten
1 tsp dry parsley
1 tbs dry italian seasoning
2 cups shredded mozerella cheese


Grill the zucchini until it is semi-soft - i used a George Forman

Step 1.
fry the minced garlic for just about a minute,
add and Brown the turkey
To the browned turkey add the marinara sauce.

In the meantime:
Combine 1 cup mozerella
Ricotta cheese
1 beaten egg
2 tsp italian seasoning
1 tsp parsley
dash of pepper

Cover the bottom of the casserole dish with a thin layer of the sauce mixture
layer zucchini slices to cover the bottom of dish
spoon and smooth the cheese filling on top of the zucchini
cover with a layer of sauce
Repeat until you are out of ingrediants ending with sauce
Sprinkle the remaining mozerella cheese on top of the dish.

Bake for 55 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve and bask in your beautiful glory as you have just made another awsomely fabulous meal and nobody will ever know that it took you no time at all :)

smooches! gigi
