When I saw this recipe I was super excited to give it a try.  My family loves lasagna but the previous way I’ve made it wasn’t in line with the fitness goals that we all have.  This recipe is delicious and gave me new ideas for using certain flavors and ingredients together.  I think it’s so important to be open to trying new recipes.  It’s a great way to begin working healthier ingredients and cooking techniques into your daily meals.

Here are the ingredients that I’m using to make this flavorful Marathoner’s Zucchini Ribbon Lasagna.  Doesn’t it look good already?  I didn’t even have to do much to make it.  I got the zest from a lemon and sliced up peppers and zucchini.  Everything else that I purchased only needed to be opened, washed or measured.  Easy!

While I was making this I was wondering why I haven’t cooked like this more.  I mean, it’s not that hard to add a bag of spinach to lasagna or to substitute AllWhites® Egg White for regular eggs.  Plus, the payoff is huge with decreased fat and calories from the standard lasagna that I previously made to this high protein (20+ grams) recipe.

I love zucchini but I recently let a bunch of it just rot away in a drawer in my fridge.  I had planned to just serve a dish of zucchini but then I forgot.  Because I had been falling back on my old high calorie standard recipes and meals, I wasn’t thinking of using zucchini in a different (for me) way.  This recipe showed me just how easy it is to incorporate it into other meals.  Here’s what it called for: Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Arrange zucchini strips in a single layer; season with salt and pepper and lightly spray with cooking spray. Bake about 15 minutes, turning once, until juices are released.  I ate two pieces that never made it to the lasagna.  Delicious.  Take those ideas and incorporate them into other meal ideas, even sandwiches!

  1. I love egg burritos, so I would probably make that first. But just about anything we bake has eggs in it, so the sky is the limit.
