Lasagna Stuffed Zucchini

by Sarah

Lasagna is always a big hit in our house. To change things up a bit, I decided to give this lasagna stuffed zucchini recipe a try!

What you’ll need:

  • 4 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and deseeded
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup cottage cheese (this is my healthier twist on ricotta!)
  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

Putting it together:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread a thin layer of olive oil on the zucchini (inside and outside) and place in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
  • Cook the ground beef/turkey in a skillet on medium-high heat. Once meat is cooked through, add in onions, mushrooms, and marinara sauce.
  • Remove zucchini from the oven and fill with all the fixings - cottage cheese, marinara sauce mixture, and top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake about 15 minutes until the zucchini is tender (can stick a fork into it) and the cheese is golden brown. Garnish with parsley and enjoy!

Be Well,
