Zucchini and Carrot Rotini Lasagna

A healthy lasagna that tastes amazing! This is comfort food without the guilt.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • Ad
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 pkg. lean ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 half onion
  • 3/4 box Barilla Plus Protein Rotini
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (15 oz.) container ricotta cheese

Directions:

Brown meat with garlic, onion, and celery. Add tomatoes and paste, along with the zucchini and carrots. Add spices of your choice to flavor (I added a half tsp. of oregano, basil, and crushed chilies).

Let sauce simmer for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook Rotini al dente.

Layer all ingredients into a casserole dish, like a lasagna and bake for 30 minutes.

If you have a small family you can freeze leftovers!
