Recipe Swap Tuesday ~ Cheesy Zucchini

I've never been a huge fan of lasagna, but I stumbled upon this easy recipe for a healthier version and tweaked it a bit and ended up loving it.

Now, I'm not a fan of jar sauce and make a homemade pot of sauce almost every week. However, for a quick and easy recipe I decided to use jar sauce as I wasn't going to make a whole pot of sauce just for this recipe, and it worked great.


2 large squash/zucchini, chopped
Extra lean ground turkey
1 jar of sauce
1 bag of shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Heat ground turkey on the stove top until fully cooked
Chop zucchini
Spray a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray
Put a layer of the zucchini down in the dish, then pour the ground turkey on top, add the sauce and another layer of zucchini. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake at 350 for about 1/2 an hour

  1. That's a fun twist on Lasagna - my husband is a huge fan of lasagna so I'll be trying this!

  2. I'm not usually big on zucchini but this sounds delish! Did you know it's National Lasagna Day? Your recipe fits perfect with it! :)

  3. I don't like lasagna either. But I really don't like ground hamburger with my pasta sauce, so therefore I don't like meaty sauce on spaghetti or meatballs in spaghetti. I'm weird like that. ;)

    I've done "lasagna" with eggplant and love how it came out. I also used ricotta.

  4. This looks so good!! Thanks for sharing a healthier version! I love anything with a red sauce. :-)
