“Zucchini slices step in for pasta in this low-carb and gluten-free beef lasagna that is delicious and satisfying; such a crowd pleaser!”

Ingredients

cooking spray

1 1/2 large zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthwise

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound ground beef

1 1/2 cups low-carb marinara sauce

2 teaspoons salt, divided

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 (8 ounce) container ricotta cheese

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Pat dry zucchini slices with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture.
  3. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef; cook until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add marinara sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, oregano, and pepper; simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon salt, ricotta cheese, egg, and nutmeg in a bowl; mix well.
  5. Make 1 layer of zucchini slices in the prepared baking dish. Cover with 1/2 of the sauce. Add another layer of zucchini slices. Spread ricotta mixture on top. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Add another layer of zucchini slices; cover with the remaining sauce and top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake until top is golden, about 15 minutes more.
