Adapted from “Paleo Lasagna” on MyBizzyKitchen.com


1.  Slice 3-4 Zucchini lengthwise into flat strips (these act as lasagna noodles).
Bake the strips of Zucchini in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes, to soften.

2.  Combine the following ingredients in a pot & cook over medium heat until tender. We like to cook in a Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker to save time & nutrients.

  • 1 Chopped Head of Cauliflower
  • 3 Chopped Carrots
  • 3/4 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • Salt & Pepper

3.  Then puree the Cauliflower & Carrot Mixture with a hand-held blender.

4.  Choose any combination of the following meats to make 1.25 lbs.

  • Pork Breakfast Sausage
  • Ground Beef
  • Ground Turkey

5.  Season meat with the following ingredients & then brown in a deep skillet:

  • 1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Basil
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper

6.  Add approximately 20 oz. of Crushed Tomatoes to complete the meat sauce.

7.  Assemble the ingredients in a 9x13 Baking Dish, creating thin layers, in this order:

  • Layer of Meat Sauce
  • Layer of Zucchini
  • Layer of Cauliflower/Carrot Puree
  • Another Layer of Zucchini (optional)
  • Another Layer of Meat Sauce, across the top

Bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until ingredients solidify & top starts to brown.
