Low Carbohydrate Lasagna Recipe
Making a low carb lasagna recipe wasn’t as hard as I had expected. As a matter of fact, my new home cooking routine isn’t half bad. It’s a great feeling to know I have control over the ingredients in my dinners. When I shop for a frozen lasagna, I have to be very careful about reading the ingredient panels because a lot of frozen meals contain preservatives that are not only unhealthy, but, for me, trigger headaches and migraines.
Low-Carb and Keto-Friendly Lasagna Recipe
This healthy lasagna recipe isn’t a no-carb lasagna, but it’s pretty low-carb lasagna! An added bonus is that it tastes great. No complaints from my family, and some of us even splurged for a second helping. I took an easy way out and used a canned organic spaghetti sauce, but in the future I may try my hand at a homemade tomato sauce. You can use a canned sauce or use a tried-and-true spaghetti sauce recipe from your recipe box.
This homemade zucchini lasagna makes approximately eight servings. After we all had our share, I portioned the remaining lasagna up into single-serving portions and froze them for leftovers. It warms up nicely in the oven or even microwave if you want to go that route.

Zucchini Lasagna Recipe | Low Carb Lasagna Recipe
- 2 lbs Hamburger Ground, Lean
- 24 oz Spaghetti Sauce
- 3 cup Mozzarella Shredded
- 1 cup Parmesan Cheese Shredded
- 6 whole Zucchini
- 2 whole Tomatoes Roma, suggested
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Once your pan is heated, add the olive oil.
- Add the ground hamburger to the pan. As it's cooking, stir and break up the meat with a large wooden spoon. Cook the beef until it's no longer pink. Approximately five minutes.
- Once your meat is cooked, drain and dispose of the grease.
- Place your ground hamburger back into your skillet and add your spaghetti sauce and diced tomatoes.
- Continue to stir the mixture over medium-high heat until it begins to simmer.
- Once your mixture is simmering, reduce the heat to keep a low simmer, stirring frequently for ten minutes.
- Remove meat mixture from the stove and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Cut and discard the ends off of the zucchini. Stand the zucchini vertically and slice along the length into 1/8-1/4” thick strips. They will not all be the same size, and that's okay.
- Arrange 1/3 of your slices of zucchini along the bottom of your baking dish, slightly overlapping each other.
- Evenly spread half of your meat mixture on top of your first row of zucchini.
- Evenly spread 1/3 of your cheese over the meat.
- Continue this process until all your ingredients are in the dish. Give the dish a nice shake and bump on the counter to help settle your ingredients.
- Bake your lasagna uncovered until golden brown on top, approximately 45-60 minutes.
- Allow your lasagna to rest for 15 minutes, slice, and serve.
