Healthy Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna

Lately, I've been trying to find ways to eat the things I love but with fewer carbohydrates and less gluten.  Sometimes when I eat the things I love I have been feeling bloated, so I decided to check both carbohydrates and gluten.  

This version of Lasagna is healthy because of all the vegetables in it.  For example, it has spinach in it.  Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium and vitamin C. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, protein, and choline

It also has Zucchini of course.  Zucchini is low in Saturated Fat and Sodium, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin A, Thiamin, Niacin, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium, and Manganese.

So as you can see using the zucchini for the traditional pasta noodle can save the calories and the carbohydrates.  

You can add anything you like in your lasagna, meat or no meat or all vegetables, it doesn't matter.  Just make it your own and cut the carbohydrates.  Eat healthier if you can.  Try it!!

While your zucchinis are drying out, start your sauce.  My sauce is store spaghetti sauce, but you can make your own.  I pre-cooked my ground beef and Italian sausage and added to the sauce.  I added more Italian seasonings, basil, and garlic and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.  Then, I added spinach and let it wilt for about 2 minutes.  Then it is time to assemble your lasagna.  Start with some sauce, add the zucchini noodles, add more sauce, add some cheese then back to the zucchini noodles.  Repeat.  Top it off cheese and bake.
