My carb cravings have been all over the place this week! One way I enjoy satisfying that craving is by incorporating a shitton of veggies into my favorite recipes. These zucchini lasagna stuffed peppers are just what I needed.
Time to Prep:
We start by cutting off the top and deseeding the peppers. Then pop them into the oven to get the cooking process started. While the peppers are in the oven, you want to cook the meat sauce, slice the zucchini and prepare your ricotta mixture.
Now, you are going to stuff the peppers by layering the ingredients like you would a lasagna. The order of your layers is totally up to you. You can achieve two layers of meat sauce, ricotta, and zucchini in each pepper. Then, end with a layer of mozzarella and parmesan cheese. This is the perfect place to get the kids involved in the cooking process! It’s fun and you don’t need to worry about anyone using a knife.
It’s always fun to get the whole family involved. The second time I made this recipe, I was able to get some of my little cousins involved and they loved it! They were so excited to see how it turned out, and what it was going to taste like. So, if you are trying to get your kids/family to eat more veggies, this recipe is definitely a fun start.
Feel free to ask any questions, share with all your lasagna-loving friends who want to cut down on those calories, and as always, have FUN in the kitchen!Print
