Lasagna made with zucchini? You betcha! You may be skeptical of the lack of cheese and noodles in this dish, but if you give it a try, you may very well be won over by the amazing flavor of this scrumptious (and healthy!) main dish. Of course, you can always add your favorite cheese or the dairy-free Daiya cheese that many grocery stores carry now.
The health benefits of zucchini make it a great alternative to lasagna noodles. Zucchini is an excellent source of potassium, which aids in reducing blood pressure and heart rate. It’s rich in vitamins A and C and is a low-calorie vegetable. Zucchini also contains large amounts of flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants that help rid the body of harmful free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are involved in aging and various disease processes. The skin is also abundant in dietary fiber.
The pasta primavera sauce is an excellent, dairy-free sauce that nicely combines with the other ingredients for a scrumptious result! So whether you’re skeptically considering trying this lasagna, or your mouth is watering from excited anticipation, let me encourage you to give this satisfying dish a try. Who knows? You may have just found a new family favorite. . . 🙂
