Zucchini Lasagna Roll-ups

Zucchini Lasagna Roll-ups

Because of my love affair with pretty much anything pasta, lasagna is a dish I LOVE!!!  However, there are numerous issues with it.  First of all, it takes forever to make and second, it’s super carb heavy and loaded with saturated fat from all the cheeses and meat.  However, I’ve come up with these zucchini lasagna roll-ups as a solution to all that!

In place of the pasta, I have substituted for slices of zucchini and although you could add some ground turkey, I opted to keep this recipe vegetarian.

These zucchini lasagna roll-ups are so delicious you won’t even miss the pasta, I promise.

This delish recipe is found on page 40 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.
