Zucchini Lasagna Boats

Must get this recipe up before summer’s over. Must get this recipe up before summer’s over. Must get this recipe up before summer’s over.

Oops! I failed.

Summer and fall are my two favorite seasons, so I’m savoring the last of the warm weather, but enjoying the occasional opportunity to enjoy open windows and feel the breeze. I was initially stubborn and resistant, but I’m finally getting on board with the boots and a fall decoration or two. That being said, I’m still making the most of the last of my zucchini.

Not that you can’t find zucchini’s year round and lasagna is GREAT for cooler weather.

This recipe is a must try.

If you try any of my recipes, this might be the one. I’ve made it a few times now and it’s so good. I might, maybe love it more than regular lasagna. That says a LOT because I looove lasagna.
