Gluten Free Lasagna by quornflour

The other day at work, I was sitting in a meeting and discovered this ridiculous Windows Phone app called Pocket Unicorn. It said that a unicorns favorite food is a lasagna sandwich. My friend and I agreed that it actually sounded like it could be delicious. Either way, it made me want lasagna.

Then I figured if I do decide to make a sandwich out of it, I should skip the noodles and make it with zucchini instead of actual noodles.

Here is what you will need:

  • 2 Cups of ricotta cheese, drained
  • 2 Cups of cottage cheese, drained
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 12 leaves of basil, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ Cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon “Italian Spices”
  • 16 oz fresh mozzarella
  • 3 thinly sliced 10-12 inch zucchini (with a nice sharp knife, cut it in half, then slice a thin slice down the side, lay the zucchini on the flat side and slice thinly)
  • 2 Cups of tomato sauce
  • Olive oil spray

Putting it together is pretty simple:

  1. Heat the oven to 350⁰
  2. In a bowl mix the beaten eggs, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, garlic, basil, parmesan cheese, basil and Italian spices.
  3. In a lasagna pan spread a cup of tomato sauce
  4. Lay down a layer of zucchini
  5. Spread ½ of the cheese mix over top
  6. Top with a layer of zucchini
  7. Top with tomato sauce
  8. Add a layer of mozzarella chopped into small ½ cubes
  9. On top of that add another layer of zucchini
  10. Spread the rest of the cheese mix
  11. Then add one last layer of zucchini
  12. Top with mozzarella
  13. Spray with olive oil
  14. Cook for an hour or until golden brown and bubbly
  15. Let it stand for about 10 minutes and serve warm

It turned out really good, it is a little watery, but I think that is way better than dry.

Have you tried pre-cooking or salting/draining the zuke slices before assembly?

I haven’t, though as I was making it I did think about salting them, or even drying them in the oven in advance. I will have to try that out next time!
Good idea!
