    Makes 12 to 15 servings

    Lasagna Ingredients
    1 lb ground beef
    Spice mixture (recipe below)
    Dash of Worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped carrots
    1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    Olive oil to sauté and grease pan
    3 tbsp tomato paste
    2 (28-oz) cans tomato purée or ground peeled tomatoes
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    2 qts ricotta
    1/2 cup low-fat mozzarella
    fresh parsley, chopped
    4 oz no-boil lasagna noodles
    2 medium zucchini
    1/4 cup freshly grated parmagiano-reggiano, divided

    Spice Ingredients
    2 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp dried basil
    3/4 tsp ground fennel seed
    2 tsp garlic powder
    2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes
    1 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp brown sugar
    1 tsp black pepper
    2 tsp iodized salt

    Directions
    Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large, high-sided pan, add a touch of olive oil and sauté ground beef, breaking up large chunks, about 2 minutes. Add spice mixture and a few dashes Worcestershire sauce.

    When meat has browned, add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add celery, carrots and tomato paste; stir together and allow to rust.

    Add tomato sauce and simmer 5 to 10 minutes until slightly thickened and flavoring meat.

    In a separate bowl, create ricotta: Combine egg, ricotta, low-moisture mozzarella mixture, 1/2 the parmagiano-reggiano and parsley.

    Slice zucchini lengthwise on mandolin and place in strainer with salt to allow some water to come out.

    To build: Grease 9"x13" baking dish with olive oil. Layer in a few sheets of pasta to cover the bottom, then layer with meat sauce and ricotta cheese. Start next layer with zucchini slices instead of pasta – repeat layering until dish is full. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan
