"This fantastic tasting lasagna is quick and easy to put together with pantry items I always have on hand. You can leave the rind on the zucchini or peel it if you wish. If you do not have a mandoline make sure you have a very sharp knife to make sure you have nice thin strips of zucchini."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Thinly slice the zucchini with a mandoline, spread over a clean kitchen towel and generously sprinkle with salt; let sit for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Use another clean kitchen towel and gently pat the moisture out of the zucchini strips.

Step 3

Mix the pasta sauce and sundried tomato paste together in a bowl and set aside.

Step 4

Mix the cottage cheese and egg together and set aside.

Step 5

Place just enough of the pasta sauce mixture to cover the bottom of a lasagna pan, layer a row of zucchini strips over the sauce and add a light layer of the cottage cheese mixture and pasta sauce mixture; top with a layer of shredded cheese and sprinkle a bit of the grated parmesan Continue layering in this manner until all ingredients are gone, making sure you leave enough of the cse to cover top.

Step 6

Cover with a layer of foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes; remove foil and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes until the noodles are completely softened and top cheese layer is completely melted.

Step 7

Remove from oven and allow cooling at least 15 minutes before slicing.

Step 8

Time to pull out all my zucchini recipes since they are springing up all over the place in my garden. This was the first thing I tried. I did use Ricotta instead of Cottage cheese, along with an egg, parsley, garlic and onion powder, a little s&p, and we were good to go. Refreshing and deliciousness in a pan!

We loved it! With an abundance of zucchini, from my garden to use up fast, I made this. It was so delicious! I opted to roast the zucchini a little before assembling and my lasagna was not watery at all.
