Broken Lasagna with Zucchini-Tomato Sauce

foodie

Thoughts Before Cooking:

I got this recipe out of Food Network Magazine July/August 2012 issue. That pasta on the cover looked so good, I just had to make it.

Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • 2 Large Zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 12 oz of Lasagna Noodles, broken into bite sized pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Cups of Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Grated Lemon Zest
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

  1. Grate the zucchini
  2. Break up the lasagna noodles
  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
  4. Toss the zucchini with 1/2 a teaspoon of salt in a colander set over a bowl. Let it stand 10 minutes, then squeeze out the excess moisture.
  5. While the water is boiling, cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  6. Heat the butter in a skillet, tossing in the tomatoes. Let the tomatoes cook until blistered and slightly softened, (about 4 minutes).
  7. Stir the zucchini and lemon zest into the tomatoes. Lightly crush the tomatoes with a wooden spoon, and cook until zucchini is crisp-tender, (about 4 minutes).
  8. When the water is boiling, add the pasta. Stir to keep it from sticking.
  9. Let the pasta cook for 12 minutes, then drain the pasta. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  10. Transfer the zucchini-tomato mixture into a large bowl. Add the pasta and cheese.
  11. Add about 1/4 cup of pasta water and toss, adding more water if needed.
  12. Season with salt, pepper, and extra cheese.

One time I ran out of noodles and made it with regular pasta which worked just as well as the lasagna.
