Turkey Sausage & Zucchini Lasagna


If you were thinking this was a zoodle lasagna, think again! However, making lasagna in the slow-cooker yields lovely browned edges and a convincing baked flavor. It’s also easier than traditional lasagna because there’s no need to cook the noodles before layering them with the sauce and zucchini; they become deliciously tender during the 4–5 hour cooking time.

FREAKING YUM, Jen. I used ground turkey that I spiced like pork sausage would be spiced, homemade marinara sauce (The Best Marinara Sauce Yet, which is also from this site), whole wheat lasagna noodles and I used “trim” cottage cheese instead of ricotta only because a)we don’t care for ricotta and b)I’m quite cheap. My egg white was from an organic egg. I had a few bites but my family inhaled the rest….even my littlest who LOVES lasagna. He couldn’t tell there was zucchini in it!!! No leftovers. None. I’m low on money so I served this with homemade cornbread but next time, I’ll be sure to serve this with garlic bread to sop up some of the sauce from the plate. I’ll for sure make this again. I’m impressed.

This was excellent! Will definitely make this again! I added onion and garlic (because I nearly always do) and I had a bunch of cherry tomatoes that really needed to be used up so I added them quartered, but they didn’t alter the taste much. I used sweet italian sausage, removed the casings. It really tasted great, we all loved it. Thanks jennkl!

Ingredients:

8 ounces sweet Italian turkey sausage links, such as Jennie-O (2-3 links)
