Grainless Zucchini Lasagna Casserole ***

This is the perfect light meal to start 2016 off right! You can still eat healthy and have a savoury meal while you’re at it. Zucchini makes a great substitute for normal noodles. If you haven’t tired zucchini noodles before I highly recommend it. They have a similar texture to normal noodles and pick up the taste of whatever they are paired with. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, grain free, nut free, soy free and refined sugar free.
