"We have plenty of zucchini in our garden and we're always looking for new ways to use it. This is a pretty yummy way! I used Jimmy Dean sausage instead of hamburger. I also doubled the cottage cheese mix and added more cheese because I like my lasagna nice and rich! I also peeled and de-seeded the zucchini."

"I omitted the flour, since I'm avoiding carbs. Which made the final result a little watery, but it was still delicious."

"I've made zucchini lasagna, but never used the flour as in this recipe. I'm sure it will make the end result more firm and manageable"
