What's cooking for dinner tonight? Zucchini Lasagna without the Noodles!

And tonight's dinner is....zucchini lasagna without the noodles! So fast & easy to make.

5 zucchinis sliced long ways
1 pound ground beef (I used 93/7)
1 white onion chopped
2 cups marinara sauce (I used Trader Joe's)
shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
olive oil
4 canned artichoke hearts quartered (optional)

Preheat oven to 400, lightly oil a baking sheet and line up zucchini on it. Bake for about 20 mins.


In a pan, saute onion and ground beef until ground beef is no longer pink. Add salt, pepper, basil, oregano & marinara sauce and let simmer for 20 mins.

In a 8x8 pyrex, begin to layer. Apply a very thin layer of the ground beef sauce then layer zucchini, ground beef sauce, cheese (if you are using it) and repeat the layers one more time. On the last layer, place the artichoke hearts.  Bake on 350 for 20 minutes.


 Hope you enjoy!
