Lasagna

Zucchini “Noodle” Lasagna

Sorry about those of you that can’t, or don’t eat cheese. I guess you could omit the cheese and make this lasagne, but I’m not sure how that would work. The sauce however works really well on spaghetti squash or spirilized zucchini noodles.

Place zucchini on the dryer racks of your dehydrator and dry for 3 hours (mine has a “vegetable” setting at 135F/58C, and I rotate the racks every 30 minutes or so) You want to remove most of the moisture so they are like leather.

Before:
