Mouth Watering Wednesday: Paleo Lasagna

Welcome to Mouth Watering Wednesday! Spice up your life and try a new recipe!  This week I am posting a recipe for all you Italian food lovers!  Lasagna, paleo style! 

Disclaimer: I originally found the inspiration for this recipe here, however I changed it so much that I am sharing my version!  I hope you like it!  

Here's what you'll need: 

For the meat sauce: 

  • 1 onion, diced 
  • 1.5 lb ground beef (or ground meat of your choice)
  • 3-5 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 can of tomato paste (the small can)
  • 4 tbsp Italian spice blend (oregano, basil, garlic etc) 
  • 1 carton mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper
For the cheese sauce: 
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 head broccoli, roughly chopped
For the "noodles":
  • 2-3 zucchinis and/or yellow squash, cut into medallion rounds

Here's what you'll do: 
  • First, saute' up your onions in a skillet (I usually use olive oil the keep them from sticking) 
  • Add your ground beef and cook until meat is browned
  • Add your remaining ingredients for the meat sauce
  • In a separate bowl combine the ingredients for the cheese sauce
  • Now, in a casserole dish (you'll want to use 9x13 or larger) start layering up your items. You should get at least two layers of each.
    • Zucchini/squash, meat sauce, cheese sauce
  • Top with extra cheese (if you like) and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
