Lasagna, of sorts

  • 3 or 4 zucchinis, sliced thin (use a mandolin for even, thin slices)
  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1-2 onions, diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 can plain tomato sauce (read the label, some have sugar in them)
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 cup (or thereabouts) shredded cheese such as mozzarella
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Fry up the hamburger with the onions and garlic, adding the green pepper, sauce, and tomatoes when the meat is browned. Yes, this is making a simple pasta sauce.
  3. Put a layer of zucchini in a casserole dish (grease it or not, your choice), then a layer of sauce.
  4. Repeat twice more, so you have 3 zucchini layers and 2 meat layers.
  5. Top with the cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven 45 minutes or so.
NOTE - a LOT of liquid will come out of the zucchini during cooking. This is normal.
