We were loving our traditional chicken lasagna recipe when I started to eat less breads and pasta. We simply changed the recipe to no longer include noodles but zucchini instead. It does make the recipe a bit more soupy. We then cook some penne pasta on the side for Ryan as he needs those carbs for training and racing.
Zucchini Chicken Lasagna
2 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 cups mozzarella cheese
8 tablespoons of Parmesan
24 oz fat free cottage cheese
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 large zucchini’s, sliced thinnly
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 yellow bell pepper
8 basil leaves (or dried basil)
1/2 cup parsley
24 oz spaghetti sauce
1 tablespoon garlic
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Saute onion and pepper. Then add chicken. (I usually used left over chick that is already cooked. Takes less time to prepare!)
3. Spray 9 X 12 baking dish with nonstick. Spoon half cup of spaghetti sauce on bottom of pan.
4. Mix basil, parsley and garlic into cottage cheese.
5. Layer zucchini, 1/3 cottage cheese mix, 1/3 chicken mix, 1/3 remaining sauce, 1/3 of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
6. Repeat layers in #5 until complete.
7. Cook uncovered for 45 minutes to an hour. Enjoy!
