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.

So delicious... I grilled the zucchini with little salt and i used ground veal. I didn't have mozzarella and i used pepper jack instead, came out really good.

You might try using yellow summer squash in this recipe. It doesn't look green, so I've been able to "get by" using it in recipes when the family can't look at any more zucchini.

We loved this! I made one change because I was nervous about the zucchini making it watery, so I layered the bottom in noodles and used zucchini as the seconde layer. I broiled the zucchini and really made sure I got as much water squeezed out as possible. It wasn't watery at all. It was delish! Even great the next couple of days! Thanks so much!

Fantastic!! I did the ricotta option, but did everything else by the book. The whole family loved it!

This was made in honor of your husband, Sharon. I was so sorry to hear he had passed away! You can't go wrong with a Cooking Light recipe. This was a delicious and filling comfort meal and I plan to make it again soon.

Love this - I also don't precook the "noodles" but I do dry them between paper towels before adding them to the dish. I make my own sauce and use sausage for a little extra pep.
