When we were in Italy, we ate an Artichoke Lasagna and fell in love with this simple but delicious dish. Back in America we found that this wasn’t found on many menus. Therefore, I have tried to recreate this yummy Dish.
Here is my version of a Zucchini Lasagna Recipe with Artichokes. This recipe uses Zucchini for Lasagna Noodles and is therefore a healthier version of Lasagna.
Since my Zucchini crop is in full swing this is a cheap, easy and delicious dish.
Zucchini Artichoke Lasagna Recipe
Ingredients: See recipe for exact measurements
- 1 can artichoke hearts
- 3-4 Zucchini
- Red Onion
- Garlic Powder
- Shredded Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese
- Mayonnaise (vegan mayo tastes great as well)
- Low Fat Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
- Parmesan Cheese
- Cheddar Cheese
- Sliced Almonds
As you can tell
How Do You Use Zucchini For Lasagna Noodles?
In order to use Zucchini for Lasagna Noodles, you will want to use a mandolin slicer to thinly slice to resemble lasagna noodles.
I recommend peeling the zucchini prior to slicing length wise for best results.
Prepare ingredients for Zucchini & Artichoke Lasagna
Begin by draining the artichoke hearts because you want all the moisture removed before you start to chop them. Chop finely
Next, slice you zucchini and onion using a mandolin slicer .
Additional supplies needed Mixing Bowl and Measuring Cup
Mix artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, sour cream and garlic powder together in small mixing bowl.
To reduce calories, you can use vegan mayo and plain greek yogurt as a substitute here.
Layer Your Ingredients
Begin to layer your ingredients in a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Follow the layering procedure listed on the recipe.
Just before placing in the oven.
Be sure to preheat your over to 350 Degrees and cover you baking dish with aluminum foil.
Note: You will cook covered for 30 minutes and then remove the foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until slightly golden on top.
Let Lasagna rest for approx. 5-10 minutes before serving.
