Zucchini Lasagna – Slow Cooker Recipe

Slow cooker

At this time of year, there is an abundance of fresh zucchini. So, I thought I would share a very easy recipe for zucchini lasagna which I make in the slow cooker.

  • Ingredients
    • 5 or 6 small to medium zucchini
    • 1 pound ground turkey or hamburger
    • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese
    • 1 jar pasta sauce
  • Preparation
    • Brown the turkey or hamburger in a skillet
    • Peal the zucchini
    • Slice the zucchini into 1″ thick pieces
  • Steps
    • Layer zucchini, turkey (or hamburger), cheese and pasta sauce
    • Make a second layer of the same
    • Optional – If you’d like the lasagna a little less juicy, you could add some bread crumbs in the layers.
    • Put in the slow cooker on low for about 6 hours

When I use the slow cooker in the travel trailer, I’ll use a liner for easy cleanup. I buy several of these each fall when Aldi’s offers them as a Special Buy. At home, I am too cheap, so no liner.

That’s it! We enjoyed our zucchini lasagna with a fresh ear of corn and some sliced tomatoes from a local farm. Are you hungry yet?
