  • 1 cup Green Bell Peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup Onion, chopped
  • 1 Zucchini, sliced thinly
  • 1 box of mushrooms, sliced (more or less to your liking)
  • 1 (24 oz) jar of marinara sauce – I use Rao’s or Trader Joe’s
  • 1/2 c. fresh shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 c. lowfat mozzarella cheese (optional) – can add more to have a cheesier recipe!
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Brown the ground beef or ground turkey in a large pot over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Add in garlic, onion and green pepper, and continue to sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in marinara sauce.
  • Bring sauce to a light boil, then remove from heat.
  • Add 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese and stir. Set the rest aside.
  • Place a thin layer of the sauce in the baking dish.
  • Layer zucchini and mushrooms over sauce, then mozzarella cheese.
  • Repeat, alternating layering of sauce, then zucchini and mushrooms.
  • Finish with layer of mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake lasagna at 325°F for 15 minutes, covered with foil.
  • After 15 minutes, remove foil, increase temperature to 350°F, and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
