ZUCCHINI 'NOODLES' – 3 large Zucchinis – 1 tsp Salt MEAT SAUCE – 1 tbsp Olive Oil – ⅓ cup Onion – ¾ cup Bell Pepper – 1 lb Ground Beef – 2 tsp Dried Oregano – ¼ cup Fresh Parsley – 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning – 24 oz Marinara Sauce RICOTTA CHEESE SAUCE – 1 ½ cup Ricotta Cheese  – 1 large Egg – ½ cup Parmesan  TOP LAYER – 3 cups Mozzarella

Prepare the Zucchinis

Trim the zucchini's ends, don't peel the skin off, then slice lengthwise into thin ribbons of about 1/4 inches (0.5 mm)

1

Salt the Zucchinis

Place all the zucchini ribbon in a colander, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt over them and toss with your hands.

2

Prepare the Sauce

In a large saucepan or skillet, heat olive oil under medium heat. Stir in diced onion and cook for 1-2 minutes until translucent and fragrant.

3

Add Meat

Stir in diced bell pepper and cook for 1 minute. Add in ground beef, dried oregano, dried parsley, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.

4

Cook the Meat

Cook and stir until the meat is no longer pink. Add in marinara sauce, cover, bring to boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes until sauce thickens slightly.

5

Make Ricotta Sauce

In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat egg with Parmesan and ricotta cheese. Set aside.

6

Dry The Zucchinis

Pat-dry each zucchini ribbon in absorbent paper. Arrange zucchini ribbons next to each other, press gently to pat dry, and remove excess water.

7

Assemble the Lasagna

Cover the bottom of the pan with 1/2 cup of meat sauce, then cover with zucchini ribbons.

8

Add Second Layer

Sprinkle 1/4 of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the zucchini noodles, then spread a third of the meat sauce.

9

Add Layers

Repeat the layering process of adding zucchini ribbons, shredded mozzarella cheese, meat sauce, ricotta dollops until 3 layers of zucchini are formed and no more sauce is left.

10

Bake the Lasagna

Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes in an oven preheated to 400°F (200°C). After this time, turn the oven to broil mode and broil cheese for 2-3 minutes.
