Zucchini Lasagna

Happy Monday!

So many people have been calling for more dinner recipes. We do typically make dinner at home every night, but during the summer we have been relying on grilling, salads, and roasted vegetables for a majority of our eats.

With that being said, zucchini is finally at the farmers market, which means only one thing! Zucchini Lasagna time!

Ingredients

-2 medium zucchinis

-1 cup cottage cheese

-2 cloves of garlic, minced

-gluten-free lasagna noodles

-1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce

-1 pound ground beef

-shredded cheese

Directions:

1. Brown the ground beef and drain off the excess fat.

2. Slice the zucchini thinly. We used a mandolin to tackle this step quickly and easily. Mince the garlic and mix it with the cup of cottage cheese.
