    David04's Note:

    A very healthy Lasagna recipe without all the pasta. Great way for this bariatric patient to still get one of my favorite dishes. I also like to add a little low-fat ricotta cheese to the bottom layer from time to time to change it up.

    7. 7
      Blot the zucchini dry with paper towels.

      This one was a hit. The whole family loved it! I will use more cheese next time and I don't think my tomatoes were large enough because my sauce ended up being more meaty than saucy once the tomatoes cooked down. Definitely a winner!
