How to Make an AWESOME NoodleLESS Zucchini Lasagna

...Certified Low-Carb Delicious!

I admit it, I am an Italian-food junkie. When dining out at a local Sicilian restaurant I absolutely love I have been know to order their homemade lasagna because I can pretty much eat around the noodles because they are so big. BUT look at what I prefer to make at home! Low-carb noodleless (is that even a word?) lasagna that is so delicious everyone enjoys it as much as the regular, maybe MORE!

Skinnytaste Noodle-less Zucchini LasagnaSkinnytaste Noodle-less Zucchini Lasagna – we LOVE this noodle-less lasagna in my home. I’ve made this hundreds of times, and learned the secret to perfect zucchini “noodles” is grilling them first which dries out the noodles so your lasagna won’t be too watery. Also, baking it uncovered for most of the cook time. Smart Points: 9 • Calories: 345See the full recipe here —- > http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/02/zucchini-lasagna.html

One “secret” to having this turn out really well is to make sure that you grill the zucchini (or eggplant for that matter, it works too) planks before incorporating them into your dish. If you don’t do that they tend to “weep” and make the lasagna watery.  But other than that you can follow the Skinnytaste recipe.  

One other word of caution, if you decide you would rather substitute a prepared marinara sauce be sure to check the carb count before buying.  I was just at Trader Joe’s yesterday and even there their sauces have gone up in carbohydrates.

I bought the Trader Giotto’s Rustico Tradition Southern Italian Sauce; it is only 4 net carbs per 1/2 cup serving. If you aren’t careful you can easily end up with one that is pretty high in carbs so be sure to double check. I do to this day because I cannot remember every sauce carb count and when they change up their recipes they can also change up the count!

If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s you can find good low-carb pasta sauce in most grocery stores or online at Netrition and Amazon that are only 4 net carbs per serving too.

So what’s your favorite secret ingredient for lasagna? Mine is making huge meatballs that I then slice into a layer; that keeps my lasagna firmer and it holds together better for cutting and serving! Please leave your ingredients or tip for making lasagna in your comment below! I love hearing from you!
In the meantime, ciao for now!
