Ingredients 2 large zucchini
1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese
12 tablespoons of marinara sauce
4 tablespoons of Emmental cheese
3 handfuls of fresh spinach
3 thinly sliced carrots
250g of sausage
200g of creme fraiche
200g of ricotta or cottage cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 of a teaspoon of dried chili
First, mix the ingredients for the sauce. Add into a bowl the creme fraiche, cottage cheese, the egg, salt and pepper, chili and the parmesan cheese. Stir until it's combined. Set aside in the fridge for an hour.
In the meantime, with a sharp knife or a mandolin slice the washed zucchini lengthwise. Move them onto a paper towel, sprinkle some salt on top and move them aside until the water has come out. Dab every slice of zucchini with some paper towel to dry them. Set them aside.
Crumble the sausage and fry it until it's cooked. Set it aside.
Heat up a grill pan. Cook the zucchini slices on high heat on both sides until they're soft and have marks on them from the grill.
In a baking dish pour 4 tablespoons of marinara sauce. Arrange some zucchini slices in a single layer.
Add some sliced carrots as well. The carrots are optional but are welcome.
Now pour 4 tablespoons of the creme fraiche sauce on top. Even it out.
Add a few pieces of sausage. Not much, because we want this lasagna to be lighter than the traditional one.
Lastly, add one big handful of spinach. Repeat these steps until you have finished the prepared ingredients.
Sprinkle some cheese on top.
Bake the lasagna in the preheated oven at 200*C for 25-30 minutes, until golden on top and bubbly. Serve immediately with more spinach and spiralized carrots.
If don't want to use sausage Is there alternative meat option and a vegetarian option that would be suitable ? Sweet potatoes l think maybe more flavoursome instead carrots . I wasn't aware that marinara sauce existed ! Low fat sour cream maybe alternative to creme fraiche . Lee
If you don't want to use sausage, you can leave it out. It's perfectly fine. And of course, you can use pumpkin instead of carrots. I added carrots to add another veggie to the lasagna, but pumpkim sounds nice as well. Greetings.
