A healthy & delicious twist on lasagna!
It’s been a long time coming … I’ve finally completed a recipe makeover for a classic Italian dish that captures the rich flavors and creamy texture without the gluten and excess carbs found in traditional recipes. It may sound impossible. But it’s actually quite easy!
The secret is to replace the pasta with mounds of delicious zucchini ribbons topped with an incredibly flavorful tomato-basil sauce with chunks of spicy sausage and a creamy spinach-laden filling reminiscent of traditional lasagna.
And bonus! … The entire recipe is made in just one pan. One skillet meals are a real favorite, because they save so much time – because seriously, who has time for doing lots and lots of dishes?
In just three simple steps, you can create a healthy, tasty meal chock full of fresh veggies:
• Step One: Spiralize the zucchini into ribbon noodles.
• Step Two: Make the hearty Italian sausage sauce and decadent spinach filling.
• Step Three: Layer it up in the skillet and bake – so easy and delicious!
And if you’re dairy-free there’s no need to miss out, simply check out the recipe variation provided below.
There’s just nothing better than beautiful real food that tastes amazing! Mangia!
This all-veggie-noodle spin on classic lasagna was inspired by my sweet friend Ali’s recipe for deconstructed manicotta found in her gorgeous new cookbook, Inspiralized. This amazing cookbook is definitely a newfound favorite – with 85 amazing spiralizer recipes and an entire section dedicated to teaching the spiralizing basics – what’s not to love!
If you recall, Ali popped over for a visit last spring to share her recipe for Turkey Bolognese with Zoodles with us. She was in fact the very person who inspired me to give this healthy habit a try. Of course, I was immediately smitten with this delicious method for getting more veggies on my family’s plate. That’s why I’m excited to share this new recipe for Skillet Lasagna with Ribbon Zoodles as part of this spring’s spiralizer series!
