No Pasta Lasagna. Yes, its true.

This was really delicious. Except I will add more vegetables next time so this recipe below calls for more veggies than the picture shows. I found the original recipe on paleoOMG, one of my favorite sites. I tend to just add or take away a few things here and there.

Ingredients:

  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tbls olive oil
  • 1 lb mild italian sausage
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef (or turkey meat)
  • 2 tbls oregano
  • 2/3 cup fresh basil
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 6 oz can of tomato paste
  • 4-5 large zucchini’s
  • optional can of sliced olives

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add chopped bell pepper, zucchini, and tomatoes. In a separate pan, cook the italian sausage and beef until no longer pink, drain excess fat. Add meat to veggie mixture and then season with all dry ingredients including chopped basil. Add diced tomatoes and tomato paste and cook. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Take the large zucchini’s and slice them with a mandolin. Or by hand, about 1/4 inch thick. Lay a layer of the zucchini on the bottom of the dish, then add a layer of the meat sauce. Add another layer of zucchini, then meat sauce. You can do this for one more layer and the last layer of meat, take the remainder of the zucchini and grate over the top of the meat like you would cheese. Add some sliced olives if you like olives. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 mins at 350. Slightly messy if you cut right out of the oven, so let cool for a few minutes.

Bon appetit!
