Yield: 1 to 2 servings

This wheat-free lasagne has an authentic Italian flavor. Strips of zucchini replace the noodles, and avocado replaces the cheese.


  • 1⁄2 zucchini, peeled
  • 2 cups spinach leaves, tightly packed
  • 1⁄2 cup Marinara Sauce
  • 1⁄2 ripe avocado, mashed


  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • small mixing bowl
  • rubber spatula
  • peeler
  • mandoline (optional)
  • food processor
  • small square container (such as a plastic container used for leftovers)

Thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise into long, wide noodles using a mandoline or a sharp knife. Place the spinach in a food processor fitted with the S blade and pulse or process until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Coat the bottom of a small square container with 2 tablespoons of the Marinara Sauce and arrange a third of the zucchini noodles in a layer over it. Top with 2 tablespoons of the Marinara Sauce. Add a layer of half of the avocado. Top with half of the spinach and press with the rubber spatula. Repeat this layering process. A third of the zucchini and 2 tablespoons of the Marinara Sauce should remain. Layer the zucchini on top and cover with the Marinara. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Lasagne will keep for two days

Wow…I’ll have to try that.  Do kids really like it??


ps - Incidentally, I have to say that your marinara sauce also goes very well with NOODLES!  lol but true!!

Hi Diane,

Yes, kids do! I love the marinara with noodles, too, either cooked brown rice noodles, or raw ones made with zucchini. To see how to make them, just check out the Zucchini Noodles video on the home page.

Thanks, Jenny.

I’ll have to try it tho my ‘kid’ is a young adult now.
(As candy-makers know,  what appeals to kids appeals to everybody)

I suspect it will help to warm it up.

Shock:  The current issue of Vegetarian Times Magazine has a pizza on the cover with long thin slices of zucchini instead of cheese!  (haven’t looked at the recipe yet but I will) Of course, it’s not raw but I’m all over the map with that currently.
