Healthy Zucchini Lasagna is the perfect blend of traditional lasagna and a veggie lasagna to please everyone in the family.

My son has never met a lasagna he didn't like. Sometimes I honestly think about Garfield when I think about him and his lasagna habit. He would eat an entire tray if we let him and usually I have to force him to eat salad in between helpings to make sure he doesn't go too far. This recipe was inspired by his love of lasagna and my desire to sneak in some veggies for a healthier, updated version of the classic dish.

But before we get into the recipe, let's back up a bit. A few weeks ago I tried making an all zucchini lasagna and it didn't fool anyone. My son was searching for noodles immediately and defintiely wasn't a fan. Now to be fair, it was a bit watery since the zucchini released a lot of liquid while it was cooking. Next time I will cook it ahead of time to dry it out more. However, either way, all zucchini lasagna isn't going to fly with him.

This recipe that combines traditional lasagna and sneaks in veggies as well is the perfect compromise that makes me feel good and makes everyone else excited about lasagna. He didn't even notice the sneaky lasagna layer when we ate it. Plus since it freezes well, I like to make two trays at a time and freeze one for later.  It's so nice to be able to pull it out of the fridge for an easy meal when I don't feel like cooking.
