Does your family love lasagna?

This deliciously easy vegetarian gluten free zucchini lasagna alfredo is an easy dinner recipe to try.

Our family loves to go to our local farmer’s market every Sunday. There is always something that inspires me to create a new recipe. This week, I found some organic zucchini at the market and they are the perfect width to use in a lasagna recipe. No noodles or pasta is needed to make this because the zucchini ribbons are perfect separators between the layers of gooey cheese.

Do you want to know a bonus to making this recipe?

Your kids will love it. This zucchini alfredo lasagna is kid friendly because the cheese hides the vegetables!

As you can see, this is a cheesy, creamy lasagna. I added mild Italian chicken sausage to our lasagna recipe. You can add sausage, or keep it meat free by adding spinach or other chopped vegetables instead for that layer. Try having a meatless Monday in your house to reduce meat consumption and focus on healthy eating as a family! #meatlessmonday

  1. Make sure to note that the ricotta needs to be gluten free. It normally isn’t.

  2. This dish looks totally amazing, Sandi! I think it’s serendipity that I have mozzarella, sausage, etc. on hand. I’ll probably use coconut milk in place of cream though. Lighten that dairy load for myself a tiny bit. πŸ˜‰

    Royal–I don’t know any ricotta cheese brands that contain gluten. I would be very interested to hear which ones do.


  3. Perfect! I have a bunch of zucchini sitting on my counter that need to be used up! I love the chicken sausage addition.
