  • 3 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp. GF dried oregano
  • 2 GF bay leaves
  • Pinch of GF cayenne pepper or to taste (optional)
  • 398 ml. (13.5 oz.) Pure tomato sauce
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced into rounds about 1/4-inch thick
  • 500 g (2 cups) regular cottage cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. GF ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup firmly packed chopped fresh baby spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped, plus some for serving
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Himalayan salt and GF ground pepper to taste
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F
  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large oven-safe pot. I used the Le Creuset pot. Add beef, onions and garlic and cook until the beef is browned. About 5 minutes. Stir in oregano, bay leaves and if using cayenne pepper. Add tomato sauce and 1 1/2 cups of water and generously season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat
  • Layer zucchini over the sauce, add 3 lasagna noodles, breaking them as needed to fit the pot. Press the noodles in the sauce. Spread the cottage cheese over the noodles, sprinkle with nutmeg, layer of spinach and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Add the remaining noodles, breaking them as needed to fit the pot. Press the noodles down into the cheese. Top with tomato slices, basil, remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese
  • Transfer to the oven and cover. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove the lid and bake until the cheese is golden. About 8 - 10 more minutes. Rest the lasagna for 15 minutes before serving. Top with fresh basil
