Fat-burning Zucchini Lasagna!

Sure, classic lasagna is delicious.

Sometimes, though, we crave something a tad less carb-heavy.

This Fat-Burning Zucchini lasagna is the perfect way to lighten up the classic dish while dieting.

Pro tip: Zucchini releases a good amount of water, so we like to dab it with a paper towel when the lasagna is done cooking, and then broil until the cheese is bubbly and crispy. 😍
