Hey Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! We certainly did!

Today…..my zucchini obsession continues!! :)

I explained in my last post, that in an effort to eat healthier, I have found a new love in zucchini. It’s seriously the most versatile vegetable! Last week, I shared a recipe for some paleo-friendly zucchini brownies and few weeks before that I shared a recipe for beef enchilada zucchini boats! Both super yummy!

Today, I am sharing an easy & delicious recipe for Zucchini Lasagna! I am having a wonderful time finding & trying new zucchini recipes. This particular recipe was a great low carb option to one of my favorite Italian dishes! SO GOOD!

Low-Carb Zucchini Lasagna Recipe. Sauce is prepared in the crock pot, making this recipe so easy to throw together!

I actually made this lasagna using my great grandmother’s slow-cooker spaghetti sauce recipe. I blogged about it several months back. It is probably the most delicious spaghetti sauce I have ever tasted….no exaggerating! And because the sauce is made in the crock-pot, it makes preparation super easy!! For the sauce recipe, be sure to check out THIS POST. 

You will notice in the printable recipe below, that the cook time is listed at 30 minutes. Please note that this does not include the cook time for the sauce. The spaghetti sauce take 3.5 hours in the crock-pot. Again, see this post for details.

  3. Add a thin layer of homemade spaghetti sauce to the bottom of a 9"x13" baking dish. Layer sliced zucchini over the top of sauce. Add layer of cottage cheese (half of container) on top of zucchini slices. Then add layer of mozzarella cheese (approximately 1 cup.) Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese on top. REPEAT once.
  4. Add one last layer of zucchini slices & top with thin layer of sauce. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Then remove lasagna from oven. Sprinkle the top with remaining mozzarella & parmesan. Place back in the oven & bake for an additional 10 minutes.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try!!

  1. I definitely want to try this! I just love when you post recipes. :d

  2. Your lasagna looks and sounds wonderful! I love lasagna, it’s one of my favorite comfort foods along with a big fresh salad, and I love how you used the zucchini here, what a great idea! Sounds like a great dinner! :)

  3. I made this last night and it was delicious! I salted the zucchini and even lightly grilled it to dry it out but my lasagna still turned out a bit liquidy. I took it out of the oven thinking it was going to be flop but it was so good. My kids (4 & 7) asked for seconds and they supposedly don’t like zucchini! My husband had 3 servings! We didn’t miss the noodles at all.

  4. We had this for dinner tonight with your crock pot sauce and it was very good! All the flavors of lasagna minus all the carbs. Thanks!
