Heathy, Filling, Nourishing

{Via Pinterest}

My dearest blog friends, 

I need your help. 

I'm on the hunt for healthy, filling and nourishing main dishes for next week. 

Will you share your favorites? 

Love-
Kara

Kara,
I make a "lasagna" using zuchinni instead of pasta. Of course it's gluten and dairy free, but honestly, it's sooooo good. Typically, I don't make a full pan of this, I usually do a lb of turkey and a lb of Italian chicken sausage and adjust the other ingredients to taste.

Lasagna

2 lbs grass fed ground beef

1lb mild Italian sausage (I used Sicilian chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s)

1 red onion diced

4 cloves crushed garlic

2 tbsp dried oregano

2 tbsp dried basil

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp olive oil

1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes drained

1 small can of tomato paste

1cup organic black olives sliced

6 zucchinis thinly sliced(I used my mandolin slicer).

In a large soup pot saute onions and garlic in the olive oil for about 3 minutes. Add ground beef and sausage and brown. Season meat mixture with all dry ingredients and add drained diced tomatoes and tomato paste and mix well. In a big lasagna baking dish place a layer of sliced zucchini and then ladle on a thick layer of the meat mixture and top with the sliced black olives. Top meat and olive layer with another layer of sliced zucchini and top with a final layer of the remaining meat mixture. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and back at 350 for 30 min. Let sit for 10 min before serving.

Skip and I love this! It would be amazing with some sweet potato fries on the side or even just some torn whole grain bread with some real butter (all in moderation).
