I made this for son who cannot eat noodles. He raved about it and I couldn't stop eating it so it passes the test....big time.
My husband doesn't like zucchini but loves lasagna. He went up for seconds!
I followed the directions on salting and roasting the zucchini first but still, it turned out like lasagna soup. I used a turkey baster and took out as much of the liquid as I could but still, too watery. Someone said to add rice but that defeats the purpose of making it low carb! Won't be making this again.
Great tips here and sooooo delicious. Don't think I will ever make lasagna with pasta again.
No-Noodle Zucchini Lasagna Haiku: "Who needs the noodles? When there's all this great flavor! I make this often." This recipe takes me way more than 30 min. to prep, so for the many times that I've made it, I always make 2-3 8X8 pans, so that I have additional ones to freeze for another night. I follow everything exactly, except adding alot of minced garlic to the saute, and I usually make the meat sauce as thick as possible, letting it simmer for awhile w/ a sprinkle of all-spice and a bay leaf. Having the spinach squeezed dry (or I'll supplement some fresh), and thoroughly salting, draining and patting the zucchini dry does help w/ the liquid issue that people complain about. Yeah, there's some drippiness when you go to serve this (and it doesn't exactly come out of the pan in attractive slices), but looks aside, it tastes wonderful and the noodles aren't missed.
