    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    Great for anyone going low carb OR who has so many zucchini, they don't know what to do!! :) We found the sauce to be very mild. I think it would be better with twice as much garlic. I boiled my zucchini slices for about 3 minutes so they were partially cooked. I wanted to make sure they were soft in the finished dish or I knew the kids wouldn't eat them. ;) The cottage cheese provides a slightly tangy note. I think we would have preferred ricotta, but that is personal taste. I use my 11x7 baking dish and got 6 pieces the size of what you see in my photos. Both of the guys ate two so it fed 4 of us, and I double the meat. Adjust the recipe accordingly for your family.

      Awesome base recipe, but made for tweeking. I doubled the beef, a must! I also doubled the seasoning and garlic. I used about 3 medium zucchini, (on top of sauce) sliced about 1/4" thick to line my baking dish boiled them a little so they would cook faster, seasoned with S&P. I did the cheese like in the recipe but it was really not enough compaired to all the meat in the sauce so I doubled that but I used ricotta cheese and seasoned that too. I added a layer of fresh basil leaves on the cheese. Layered the sauce and zucchini but on top of the last layer I added fresh mozzarella cheese. Let me tell you I could have eaten the whole tray. Will double to a 9x13 next time, definetly!! THANK YOU!! Just started a low carb way of eating and couldn't come up with anything. Now I have this.

      Great reciepe!!! I ended up going with the no boil lasagna noodles (which I highly reccommend) instead of the zucchini slices. However I did use the zucchini. I grated 3 zucchini and mixed it in with the tomatoes and seasonings. I did add extra garlic and I did double the meat. After that I went accordingly to recipe. My family and I loved it! The kids (ages 7 and 4) did not notice that there was veggies in it! Wahoo! :) Score!

      This is so good! We definitely did not miss the pasta! I used 1 lbs of ground beef, double the spices, and added salt. Before the salt the meat was pretty bland. I used ricotta because it had slightly less carbs than the cottage cheese I looked at. Also, I used a colby-jack blend because I'm not a huge mozzerella. This is definitely a keeper!! I am going to post it on my facebook right now :)
