soooo goooood. this is every low-carber's dream dinner, and no, i definitely did not miss the noodles, because everything else was so flavorful. i halfed the recipe, which seemed to work just fine, and threw in some chedder instead of parmesan, ground chicken instead of italian sausage links. wonderful, will be making again -- and often!
I've tried something similair but this one worked out much better for us. We enjoyed the spinach (threw in some chopped kale also) and mushrooms. The only small change I'd make next time is cut back the water abit cause the zucchini adds moisture to the dish already. I increased the beef 1/2 lb & used cottage vs ricotta. Excellent dish & great for carb counters, thanks for sharing.
I really enjoy the flavor of this recipe. I cooked the meat and sauce until it was very very very thick to and sauted the zucchini before making the caserole to prevent it from running
This was quite good--everyone went back for seconds. I did take heed of the other reviewers and took a few precautions to guard against runniness. I pre-roasted the zucchini; I also added sliced eggplant and pre-roasted that, too. I used thawed frozen spinach (2 10-oz pkgs) and squeezed all the liquid out before adding to the casserole. I omitted the 1/2 cup water altogether. Other changes were that I added 1/2 tsp of thyme, I used part-skim ricotta and mozzarella and I used 2 lbs hamburger, omitting the sausage. I really did NOT miss the noodles. A keeper. UPDATE: I gave this 4 stars after eating it for the first time, but then I ate the leftovers last night. After sitting in my fridge for a day, what had been a pleasant casserole became absolutely delectable. From now on I'm cooking this one day ahead, because the flavors really seem to meld overnight!
Great recipe. Have made similare a lot. Solve the water problem by roasting zuchini slices. I also sometimes add roasted egg plant.
My DH and I ate this last night for supper, and we thought it was very good. We did not miss the noodles, as the zucchini and mushrooms gave the dish a nice texture. We had no problem with the dish being runny. The only thing we did different was to sauté the spinach in olive oil, as opposed to steaming as the recipe states. We will definitely be making this again. Thank you so much Leslie in Texas for a fabulous recipe.
I absolutely loved this recipe. I did not find it runny. It was so favorful. Definitely a low carber's dream!!! I made a caesar salad and garlic bread with low carb bread. An excellent meal.
This was pretty good - a little runny. But I liked that it wasn't as heavy as traditional lasange. Think next time I'll use cottage cheese instead of ricotta just bc I prefer the texture.
This was excellent! I finally got my husband to eat spinach...in fact he didn't even notice that it was in there until I told him! This one is definitely a keeper!
Thanks a bunch for this recipe. The whole family enjoyed it. The only thing I changed was I used hot Italian sausage from the butcher. He makes a wonderful sausage and with all the rest of the combo..well I love lasagna so for me it's a keeper no doubt! The plus is I get to use my fresh zucchinis when in season. I love all the herbs as well..Thanks.
