At work I sometimes get guff about the way I eat. Because I eat healthy, sometimes it’s assumed that I’ll only eat salads. I really like my coworkers and I’m so thankful for that, but I wish I could tell them about all of the things I eat without sounding preachy. I don’t like to elaborate specifically on the way I eat, because I know I would come off as not well intentioned. Judgmental maybe. Tonight’s dinner was a prime example that I do not exist on salads. Though I’m totally down with salads. In lieu of a grain based lasagna (grains don’t treat my digestive system well) I made a zucchini lasagna. It was quick and spur of the moment, and therefore sort of messy. Pretty much assemble this the way you would assemble a regular lasagna.
-some organic pasta sauce
-ball of mozzarella
I preheated the over to 400 degrees. Using a regular vegetable slicer, I sliced out some zucchini noodles. I cut up the ball of moz. It all looked like this halfway through:
I finished the layers, and for the top added sauce, a little of mozzarella and parmesan. I popped it in the over just until the cheese was melted, the zucchini was still firm.
