I love using our fresh local vegetables and had a lot of zucchinis on hand. My family was hungry for lasagna BUT in the summertime who likes having that heavy stomach that pasta leaves? This recipe by far hits the lasagna craving and leaves you with energy to enjoy all those summer activities!

  5. Cut zucchini length wise- in thin slices
