This quick and easy recipe comes from week 1 of the Mamacita Challenge Recipe Book.
4 Zucchini or Eggplant Medium size or 4 Asian eggplants ½ - 1 inch thick
24 ounce jar of Marinara Sauce (or make your own). I used Costco Kirkland brand without added sugar ½ cup mozzarella cheese
⅓ cup parmesan or Romano cheese
4 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. of turkey, bison, chicken or ground beef *optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
1. Sautée 1/2 a large onion and 2 garlic cloves in 2 tsp of olive oil until translucent, then cook the meat if using. I also added mushrooms and fire roasted veggies; use whatever you have on hand.
2. Coat baking sheet with olive oil (used a 8x8 for a thicker lasagna, 9x13 works). Arrange sliced zucchini first the top with marinara sauce next, then ground turkey and grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese next. Repeat for 3 layers. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil and bake for 30 min.
3. Remove from oven and serve with greens. It is delicious! You don’t need a ton of cheese if it’s a good kind.
