Gluten and Dairy-Free Lasagna

Let’s get started!

Chop your onion and add it to a pan with a little olive oil, saute until almost clear. Add your ground beef and continue to cook until the beef is no longer pink. Add your chopped garlic and spices to the onion & beef mixture and cook for two minutes, then remove it from the heat.

Wash the zucchini and cut off their top sand bottoms. Using a mandolin or a knife slice the zucchini into flat noodles, be very careful you don’t slice your fingers. Using a baking pan (I used these) and a rack line the zucchini on the pan and sprinkle with salt, let it sit and sweat for 15 minutes then blot with a paper towel and put in the oven for 20 minutes. When they are done, remove them from the oven and set them aside.

If you don’t sweat the zucchini your lasagna will be very watery so don’t skip this step.

We will now begin to assemble the lasagna. In your baking dish add a little marinara sauce to the bottom of the pan and spread it around, it will keep the zucchini from sticking. Then add a layer on zucchini noodles, tomato sauce, meat mixture, cheese sauce, and then repeat until you have no noodles left. I sprinkled some additional red pepper flakes on the top of mine but you could also sprinkle some parsley or Italian seasoning over it.

Let this bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until it is bubbling.
