    Thinly sliced courgettes replace lasagne sheets in this quick and easy gluten-free version of the dish. It's still lovely and cheesy, you might not even notice there's no pasta!

    Simple, healthy and delicious! I used my griddle to cook the zucchini so I could keep it in a single layer. In addition to seasoning the zucchini with salt and pepper, I also used garlic powder. I cut the recipe down b/c I only had 2 small to medium sized zucchini, and it fit into a fairly small casserole dish (though I did get 4 layers, which I loved), so I would cook all the zucchini first then determine the size dish to use b/c I personally think that a 13x9 dish would be too big. This made a great side for our pasta tonight, but I could totally eat this as a main dish with a nice salad and some garlic bread on the side. We did not miss the usual breading/frying of regular zucchini parmesan and it wasn't nearly as heavy. This is a definite keeper~YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing.  -  20 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an awesome recipe for people on a no carb diet! It is super easy, quick, and delicious! I put ricotta cheese mixed with a little oregano and mozzarella cheese and mild Italian turkey sausage between the layers as well to make it extra yummy! I highly recommend this recipe!!  -  03 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
