There are times when I miss being able to eat lots of high-carb goodies like bread, or cookies, or sorbet, or rice, or pasta. Pasta was my go-to dinner solution whenever I was on the run and needed a quick fix. But Type 2 diabetes has nixed that for good.
BUT! I NEED MY LASAGNE! Gotta have my lasagne! *whimper*
Well, where there's a will, there's a way, or at least a recipe.
This glorious wonder of nature is homemade zucchini lasagne. IT IS SO FREAKING CRAZY GOOD that I don't miss the noodles (which were always a colossal nuisance to work with anyway; the boiled ones clung to each other and the pan-ready ones required a completely different, and soupier, recipe to work properly).
I just make my regular lasagne recipe, except instead of using lasagne noodles I substitute strips of young zucchini thinly cut lengthwise with a cheese slicer and dry-fried on both sides in a nonstick pan until most of their water is gone. I just layer them into the casserole as though they were noodles. Zucchini already marries well with typical ingredients for lasagne, so this works like a charm. Even CM and V, who are not compelled to eat low-carb, like this stuff and clamor for it.
We're pretty much ready to eat, if the lazy slugs I live with will stop taking naps and get their little rears into the kitchen. Anybody else want some?
