Zucchini lasagna 

Today I found a bag of small beautiful zucchini for one dollar. Don’t ask me how it was done, this was a blessing and I don’t want to jinx it.

I had some staples cheese, tomato sauce, onion, spices and some turkey sausage so I thought… Zucchini lasagna. No pasta just thinly sliced zucchini as noodles. I put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350° and it was so good. If you want to keep it vegetarian leave out the turkey and add mushrooms, peppers or corn.

Ingredients:

3 to 4 zucchinis, cut the tips off, slice longitudinally
Half a jar tomato sauce.
Three turkey sausages, casings removed.
One onion, diced
Spices: turmeric, Greek seasoning, garlic aoli granules, pinch hot chili flakes, S&P

Directions:

  1. Clean zucchini, cut off ends and slice longitudinally
  2. Diced onion and cook with turkey sausage under medium heat with turmeric, salt, Greek spices for ten minutes. Add tomato sauce & simmer.
  3. Coat bottom of the glass dish with tomato sauce or half a teaspoon olive oil. Lay slices of zucchini, layer the tomatoes sausage onion mixture, cheese and then another layer of zucchini the opposite way from before. Keep stacking and layering. Topped with tomato sauce and cheese on top.

Zucchini lasagna!!! It was so delicious 🤗👌🏼❤️‼️😁

Sautéed mushrooms and zucchini stirfry: what to eat at night

High carb foods eaten late at night take time to digest. It’s a good idea when, late at night, you take a break from heavy carbs like pasta, heavy starches like potatoes or bread. This of course, is just my opinion.

I ate a delicious very simple meal last night because I wanted to eat late. I thought I would share because my body felt great after eating it and it was so delicious. Here’s my very simple idea for a late night meal. Sautéed mushrooms and zucchini stirfry.

 Here is what you will need for one serving.  

Ingredients
:

Half zucchini, sliced into half moons

1 cup sliced mushrooms

Olive oil

1 teaspoon dried seasoning. I used garlic herb and Italian seasonings.

Directions:

Begin with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and seasonings under medium heat:

  
Add sliced mushrooms:

  
Add zucchini next:

   
   
Sauté for eight minutes. 

I can’t tell you what an amazing combo this was. Enjoy!

 

 
I think mushrooms and zucchini are a match made in heaven. Try it. They complement each other so well.
