    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add zucchini; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and cool. Or you may grill or saute the zucchini if you wish.
    3. 3
      Place the ground beef(or turkey or crumbles) and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until browned, stirring to break up meat. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, salt, basil, and oregano; cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Combine the cottage cheese, parsley, and eggs in a medium bowl.
    5. 5
      Arrange zucchini slices in a shallow 3-quart casserole coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle the zucchini with half of the breadcrumbs. Spread half of cottage cheese mixture over breadcrumbs; cover with half of the meat mixture and 1 cup mozzarella. Repeat the layers with the remaining breadcrumbs, cottage cheese mixture, and meat mixture; reserve the remaining mozzarella. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella, and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

      So good ... I skined the zucchini to see if I could fool the family and it worked - no one had any idea there was no pasta. I made a few changes. I didn't pre cook the zucchini and think that might be why it was a bit extra wet. I used homemade sauce and an extra garlic clove. Made for a great dinner! Thanks

      Light & delicious. I made it because my husband, after gastric bypass surgery, is now at a phase where he can eat ground meat, cooked veggies, tomato sauce, no pasta, and we grow zucchini! so all I changed was I used a little of the tomato sauce as it came out of the jar to smear on the bottom of the casserole, to keep the zucchini from possibly sticking. I added chopped onion to the meat mix & used a good canned red-wine/herb tomato sauce. I broiled the thinly sliced zucchini with a bit of olive oil, s&p, & dried basil, till tender-crisp on 2 pizza pans first. I used low-fat ricotta cheese. I tented the dish w. aluminum foil at first, then removed it once I added the top cheese layer. It came out perfect, delicious, light, and tasted even better the next day. Worlds removed from the heavy, greasy, lasagnas I've had in the past. a real winner!

      The best lasagna I've ever had. A real winner. We all really liked it. I used jarred sauce and added some ground round, and used a light ricotta. I did leave the skin on the zucchini. Hmm good! My only Lasagna recipe from now on.
