Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

I plant zucchini every year, and we always seem to have more than we can use! This recipe is a particularly delicious way to use our abundant crop.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) 2% cottage cheese
  • 3 medium zucchini (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Additional shredded mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Preheat 375°. In large skillet, cook and crumble beef with onion over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes. Stir in seasonings and tomato sauce. Bring to boil; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. In a bowl, mix egg and cottage cheese.
  • 2. Trim ends of zucchini; cut each crosswise in half then lengthwise into 1/4-in.-thick slices. Layer half of the slices in a 3-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray; dust with half of the flour. Top with cottage cheese mixture and half of the meat sauce. Add remaining zucchini; dust with remaining flour. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese; spread with remaining meat sauce.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, until heated through, about 40 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with additional cheese. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.

"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"
