Very good!!! Definitely do the salting and the grilling, as I've tried another recipe that didn't call for this and it was super watery! Time consuming, so when I make it, I do it on a Sunday and it lasts for 4 meals for my husband and me (along with a salad). I substitute lean ground turkey for the lean beef and it's just as good! I also suggest getting 2-3 more zucchini than the recipe calls for.

Love it! I had to modify it though bc under just the ingredients pages it just says “tomatoes.” In the directions it says can of crushed tomatoes so I had to use some sugar free pasta sauce

This was delicious! Will definitely fix this again...I just used a canned low carb sauce but it was just as tasty as lasagna only without all the guilt..

Best lasagne I've ever made, said my husband. I did modify some things though. 1. Sauted: yellow squash, 2 handfulls of fresh spinach, mushrooms, chopped fresh basil, and shallots, pinch of kosher salt. Put this mix under the top layer. 2. I put GF lasagne noodles under the zucchini noodles. 3. Used Thrive Basil Pasta sauce. Prepping the zucchini is key and really delivers this dish!! Turned out absolutely delicious!!!

I’ve made this casserole for years. We use ground turkey instead of beef, and the recipe doesn’t make enough sauce. I make a recipe and a half, and in a pinch, use spaghetti sauce. This gets rave reviews every time. And great for those gluten intolerant folks.

Very good but I did change ricotta cheese for cottage cheese, my husband doesn’t like ricotta cheese.

Hanging out with my girl doing what we do. We used this as a base for our own. Tastes.

This turned out perfectly. The grilled zucchini makes it amazing.

I'm excited to taste the finished product! I did incorporate italian basil and shitake mushrooms because of the texture and flavor that the mushrooms would give it. Will see in the end ...fingers crossed!!!!
Heather J. 22 Dec 2016
Amazing!! Could use a little more tomatoes but other then that tastes great! Will def make again!!!!

This was so delicious. I added lots of red pepper flakes and broiled zucchini a couple minutes on each side instead of using the grill. It came out perfect; both me and the hubby loved it!

SO DELICIOUS. I'm not the biggest fan of zucchini, but in this recipe it substitutes the noodles so seamlessly. I put the zucchini strips on my mini- George Forman grill, 3 at a time and it turned out exactly how I hoped!
Porscha Davis 25 Sep 2016
Very good recipe. This is definitely a keeper. I am looking forward to making it again. A bit time consuming but recipe was very easy to follow.
Kathryn D. 10 Aug 2016
Delicious! Really enjoyed the zucchini substitution and this is now my go to lasagna recipe. We were practically licking the plates clean.
Cherylynn G. 7 Aug 2016
Awesome! I baked the zucchini on a cookie pan with a brush of oil instead of grilling (I did that in 10 min stages as the sauce cooked, since I used a lot of zucchini slices). Turns out super delicious!
Brittany M. 10 May 2016
Beautiful! Love the grilled zucchini technic! The only thing different that I did was add some cheddar cheese
Peter G. 1 Apr 2016
This was delicious! I modified the recipe only slightly by adding ~ 1/2 tbsp of dried oregano and a ~ 1 tbsp of sugar. I will definitely make this again!
