Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna for One

Here is a simple and quick recipe to make a single serving of a Zucchini lasagna! Not only is is easy but it’s also healthy so it’s a win win 🙂

Ingredients

  • 4 oz of lean ground turkey (you can use lean ground meat, chicken or pork)
  • 1/4 lb of sliced zucchini (lengthwise)
  • 6 thin slices of tomato
  • 1/4 cup of basil finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of low fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (if you do not like spicy food leave this out)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz of low fat cream cheese
  • Dusting of grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Slice the zucchini lengthwise (about 6 slices), sprinkle with a bit of salt and set aside. Using a mandolin will ensure you have slices the same size and not too thick!

In a pan, add your ground turkey, rest of the salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and cook for a few minutes, add the cream cheese and set aside. Now it’s time to put this baby together!

I used my banana bread baking dish, but you can use anything you have on hand that is not too large so it keeps its shape.

With a paper towel, pat your zucchini dry and start by placing 3 zucchini slices at the bottom, followed by 3 slices of tomato, 1/2 of the chopped basil, now add half of your meat mixture and repeat the process.

Finish it off by sprinkling the mozzarella and a light dusting of parmesan cheese.

Place in a preheated oven at 425 deg F for 20-25 minutes or until nice and golden.

Remove from the pan and place on your favourite dinner plate. Now it’s time to dig in, enjoy!
