Weather: blue trying to peek through the clouds
What I’m listening to: the sounds of a chicken coop being built outside
Have you ever tried replacing lasagna noodles with zucchini? It’s marvelous – a lighter, more summery version of the Italian classic. The texture of the zucchini works nicely as the foundation for the ricotta, cheese, and sauce. And the flavors are lovely. I made this small batch just to try it out and it really works.
What I did is season the zucchini slices with salt and pepper and grill on each side on an oiled stovetop grill pan. Then, I patted the zucchini dry with paper towels to prevent excess water from baking into the lasagna.
If you have a lasagna recipe that you really love, feel free to try this method with your favorite recipe. Or, you can try this simple but very tasty version!
