Zucchini Lasagna

Hello, friends!

It has definitely been a hot minute since I've posted on here but I am now on break from school so I'm gettin' back into the groove of things! I definitely want to start posting more this year since I will only be taking one class this upcoming semester. Yay me! I am trying to figure out a consistent schedule for my blog posts and want to post some really cool content. Please let me know if you want to see anything in specific! 

Recap:                                                                                                                                                                        

I had such an amazing Christmas with my family!! I flew out to Idaho to spend Christmas with my sister and her family. I cooked so much food, played with my niece and nephew and got to spend some time with my seesters. We watched a ton of Christmas movies, baked, and shopped. I had the best time picking out gifts for the little ones. It's literally one of my favorite things to do! It also snowed on Christmas day which was SO cool!  I made this zucchini lasagne for my meal prep and it was so delicious. I was definitely shocked that it turned out so great. I did not add any cheese because I try not to eat it. But if you love cheese, I'm sure it would taste great in this recipe. 

Now that the holidays are over, I want to get back to meal prepping every week. This zucchini lasagna is super easy to make and was surprisingly delicious! I was definitely shocked that it turned out so great. I did not add any cheese because I try not to eat it. But if you love cheese, I know it would taste great in this recipe. 

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe

1 Package of ground turkey

½ purple onion

Orange and red peppers

1 jar of tomato sauce

5 zucchinis thinly sliced *I would definitely suggest using a slicer. I used a knife and almost cut my finger off :)

1 can of black beans

1 can of corn

2 cups of rice

Cumin

Basil

Garlic Powder

Pink Himalayan Salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 385 degrees.

Boil 2 cups of rice.

While the rice is boiling, start cooking the ground turkey. When the ground turkey is slightly brown, add in the cut peppers and onions. Cook for five minutes then add in cooked rice, corn, black beans and tomato sauce. Add in seasoning mentioned above. I usually don't measure my seasonings out but just guesstimate. If you taste the mixture and you think it needs more seasoning then add it! Cook for 10 minutes or until turkey is cooked through. 

Spray cooking pan with oil. Fill the bottom of the pan with sliced zucchini. Add mixture on top, then add another layer of sliced zucchini. Continue until filled to the top. 

Cook for 35 minutes or until zucchini is cooked through! Top will be crispy and brown!
