ZUCCHINI “NOODLE” LASAGNA

Sorry about those of you that can’t, or don’t eat cheese. I guess you could omit the cheese and make this lasagna, but I’m not sure how that would work. The sauce however works really well on spaghetti squash or spirilized zucchini noodles.

Place zucchini on the dryer racks of your dehydrator and dry for 3 hours (mine has a “vegetable” setting at 135F/58C, and I rotate the racks every 30 minutes or so) You want to remove most of the moisture so they are like leather.

lightly oil the bottom of your lasagna pan (I have a glass 15”/13” that I use) and add a couple of ladles of sauce.

Layer half of the zucchini “noodles”

Spread half of the cheese mixture

Add enough sauce to cover the cheese completely in a not too think layer

Layer the other half of the zucchini noodles

spread the other half of the cheese

Add enough sauce to cover.

Cook, uncovered in a 350F oven for about an hour.

(Optional) add shredded ¼ Cup additional mozzarella and Parmesan on top and cook another 15 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.

Let cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and enjoying.
