When we discussed how we were going to cut down the sugar in our diet you know pasta was at the top of the list and I wanted to cry. I. love. pasta. But, thankfully for Andy, I love him more. My favorite pasta dish is lasagne. I haven't fixed a pan of it in forever. That's because I only know how to fix it one way...way too much! When Andy brought in a couple of odd ball zucchini, I knew I was going to attempt to make a healthier version of lasagne. I left out the ricotta cheese I normally use and backed off to one pound of meat. They'll go back in the next time. This turned out delicious and the zucchini was firm and almost gave you the sensation of eating pasta.
In a large skillet brown 1 pound of Italian sausage (upgrade to 2 lbs. next time--1 each sausage and hamburger) and 1 onion. Spread a little spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish and then pour the rest in the skillet with the meat and onions.
great spaghetti sauce but I don't think I can shrink the carbs in my sauce that much.
Make a layer of zucchini.
Spoon around 1/3 of the meat sauce mixture over the zucchini and top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
