Food: Dinner Tonight – Zucchini and Cheese Lasagna

Okay, so here’s a solid recipe to a favorite dish of mine – spicy Italian sausage, veggie (in this case zucchini,  or eggplant that I love, and all sorts of cheese).

As you well know, I am always searching for variations to the simplest of ingredients making up a fun recipe and this one works – because in my household, we are divided – 1 Keto (me) and the rest not so much. So, this is what I do to make two dishes out of one recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground spicy Italian sausage
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 4 medium heirloom tomatoes (or regular), roughly chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup red wine  (cut out for hardcore Keto followers)
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped, plus more for serving
  • 6-8 no boil lasagna noodles (replace with sliced Halloumi cheese or just cut out the noodles altogether) 
  • 3 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/8 inch slices
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, torn
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese {more}
