This zucchini lasagna combines 2 classic comfort foods, pizza and lasagna, into one healthy and kid friendly dinner!
Alright guys, we made it through the 5 Christmas goodies. Woo to the hoo! Can you believe that Christmas is in 2 DAYS! GAH.
So, it’s time to take a sugar break and get on a slightly more healthy train. I also have story for you. Let us begin.
So, our dog ripped up the carpet in our brand new apartment yesterday.
How does that relate to anything you ask? It may seem like it does not, but let me ‘splain you how.
You see my dear crustless pizza-loving-friends-who-just-want-me-to-get-to-the-recipe-and-don’t-care-about-my-carpet-situaton, it all went down while I was making this cheese all over, pepperoni covered, zucchini filled mas-ter-piece that you want to get all up in, that you are peepin’ right thur. Longest run-on sentence to date.
I was totally getting my lasagna on guys. Even more so than BOTH the times I tried to recreate the Mexican zucchini lasagna and healthy pizza-flavored combos of classic comfort foods. Remember the crock pot pizza quinoa and pizza healthy mac and cheese? YEAH, more pizza happenings than THAT.
Like, we’re talkin’ about pizza sauce on my face, cheese in my hair and pieces of zucchini stuck to my eyeballs. That last one may have been a slight exaggeration. But, whatever,it was gooood.
So, I kept trucking along. I started hearing very odd noises coming from somewhere in the corner of our apartment, but I was rockin’ my lasagna groove so I just ignored it. Fast forward to the evening when Mr FFF came home and exclaims “SCRUFFY (that’s our dog guys, I wasn’t that hideous from my lasagna fest) TORE UP THE CARPET!”
You know what I did? Pulled the totally innocent, oblivious to life card, and said “WHAT?! I HAD NO IDEA.” It all clicked then. Maybe I should have investigated those noises a little more. And, by a little more, I mean a lot more. I bet this post is going to be the ONE post that the hubby decides to read. <3 you babe!
How-ev-er, if he does read this, I am preeeee sure that he will forgive me due to the fact that he declared this lasagna:
1) The BEST lasagna he has ever had. Yes, including ones with real noodles and beeeef.
2) Better than his mom Lasagna (sorry Mom!)
3) That you couldn’t even tell it was zucchini. And, guys, my man is a not a lover of the veggies. Every time I serve him ANYTHING that even REMOTELY resembles a vegetable he gets this “I am MAN, I need MEAT” hostility towards me. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Until THIS.
4) It actually tasted like real pizza. But, also tasted like lasagna. At the same time.
I would call that a great success.
The beauty of all of this is that you can get a little ca-ray-zay with it. I mean, you can put whatever pizza toppings you like on it! Don’t like olives? Me either! Confession: those little guys you see there are totally just to make it look like really authentic pizza and stuff. As authentic as pizza can be that is made with zucchini. And has no crust. Whatever. It’s good. And, it’s healthy, low carb AND gluten free.
You can practically eat the whole thing.
One final thought for you: cheeeeesyyyyyyy.
