Decisions…decisions…

As many of you may know, I have decided to start the keto diet. I am very pleased with the results so far. The Keto diet (lifestyle) is working wonders for me. However, this does not mean that I’ll only post Keto friendly recipes. For the time being and as my journey starts, I want to share Keto recipes with y’all, but I’ll also post regular recipes eventually (please bear with me).

As I mentioned before on my previous post, Low-carb or Keto does not mean boring. I know for sure you are going to love this Zucchini Lasagna as much as me (and my family).

I’ve tried this recipe multiple times. I first made it during the Christmas break, my family ate this almost every weekend. Everyone was happy (like really happy).

  • Ground turkey
  • Onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Garlic
  • Dried oregano
  • Parsley  and extra for garnish

The method at a glance:

  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice Zucchini lengthwise, season with salt and place on a rimmed sheet pan.
  3. Place Zucchinis in the oven for about 10 minutes. Set aside. Note: We do this to drain as much water as possible from the Zucchini.
  4. Heat Olive oil on a pot.
  5. Add onion, bell pepper, minced garlic, dried oregano, and ground turkey.
  6. Let it cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Add tomato sauce. Let simmer for about 5 minutes.

For the White sauce:

  2. Add minced Garlic
  3. Add chopped parsley
  4. Finish sauce with grated Parmesan cheese.
  5. Adjust seasoning.

Assemble Lasagna and place in the oven for 45 minutes.

Tip: When making sauces it is important to add salt gradually. Always remember a sauce will develop its flavor as it simmers.
