Turkey Zucchini Lasagna

I have another high protein, low-carb dinner idea for you! It’s easy to prepare and makes great leftovers for the week.

My original idea was to make zucchini raviolis that I saw on Pinterest but I didn’t get my zucchini slices quite thin enough so it quickly changed to lasagna, sometimes when life gives you lemons, you just have to make lemonade – or turkey zucchini lasagna…yum!Turkey Zucchini LasagnaPrint Recipe

Makes 4 large servings

1 lb lean ground turkey
2 medium zucchini
2 cups spinach
1/4 cup onion, diced
2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
2 cups marinara
56g goat cheese
2/3 cup or 56g mozzarella (I used Go Veggie)
2 Tbsp Italian spices
2 Tbsp fresh basil, plus more for garnish
S&P to taste

Preheat oven to 350F.  Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, slice 12 slices of zucchini.  Dice up leftovers to add to the sauce.  Add about 2 tablespoons of marinara to the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.

In a large frying pan, add ground turkey and cook over medium-high.  Once the turkey is thoroughly cooked, add in the diced tomatoes, spinach, onions, leftover zucchini, garlic and marinara.  Simmer for about 5-7 minutes.  Add spices and stir to combine.  Remove from heat.turkey zucchini lasagna2Add 4 slices of zucchini to the baking dish on top of the marinara.  Add half the meat sauce, sprinkle with 1/3 goat cheese.  Add another 4 slices of zucchini, remaining meat sauce and 1/3 goat cheese.  turkey zucchini lasagna6Top with last 4 slices of zucchini, 1/3 goat cheese and all the mozzarella. turkey zucchini lasagna5 turkey zucchini lasagna4 Cover loosely with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.  I made 4 large servings but this could easily feed 5-6 people.turkey zucchini lasagna3Enjoy!
