One of my favorite healthy dishes is this spinach lasagna. It is pretty easy, darn tasty, and very light!
First, combine 1/2 pound of ground beef with a medium onion (red or white) in a skillet, and season with salt, pepper, red pepper, and oregano, to taste. Then pour 2 cups of store-bought pasta sauce and 1 cup water over the meat and onion mixture. To that, add 1 and 1/2 cups of shredded zucchini and 2 cups of lasagna noodles (uncooked and broken into small pieces [2"x1" is what I go for], then cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes.
While that mixture is simmering, combine 1/2 cup of ricotta with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of parsley and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. When your beef/noodle/zucchini/sauce mixture has simmered (the noodles should be soft) drop the ricotta mixture by small spoonfuls on top.
Top each mound of ricotta with a little part-skim mozzarella, and let simmer for another 5-10 minutes, until everything is nice and evenly melted (I use this time to prep my salads and garlic bread).
Ta-da! Spoon this delicious mess onto a plate and enjoy! I would have included a picture of this meal plated but, in truth, it ain't pretty. The best part about this dish: you would NEVER know that it is filled with zucchini. It just tastes like regular old lasagna!
Tomorrow is the big travel day and . . . shocker . . . there's a winter storm warning at our Minnesota destination. Awesome. How does one pack to go from 85 degrees to 20 degrees and blizzard-ing?
These remind me of snowflakes and, therefore, are PERFECT!
