Spinach & Zucchini “Lasagna”

Spinach & Zucchini Pasta Bake

Bonus Secret Recipe Club entry!!!!  I’m a member of Group A of the Secret Recipe club but this month I was called in to assist a member of Group B that wound up orphaned.  As soon as I saw the name of the blog I knew I was in for a delicious treat as Heather’s Fit  Mama Real Food blog is stuffed with healthy and easy dishes.  I drove right in to her recipe page as I knew I had no time to lose with this – I needed to pick a WOW recipe NOW.  With the help of my husband I was able to narrow it down to a few (applesauce! refried beans!) options (carrot cake DONUTS!!!), all of which only required a quick stop by the store on the way home.  In the end I avoided the cream cheese icing (seriously??? carrot cake donuts!!!) and went with a healthy dinner option: Spinach and Zucchini Lasagna.  I had to make a few changes to the recipe (ricotta for cottage cheese) and also changed it from a lasagna to a pasta bake since I wanted the dish to be done before the incoming storm (and potential power loss).  Honestly this recipe is more like two recipes since you get a simply awesome tomato sauce as a bonus!


Make sure to check out Heather’s blog for all her delicious recipes – as well as pictures of her adorable baby.

    1. I still can’t get over the carrot cake donuts – next weekend I’m at home I’m biting the bullet and making those bad boys 😀 Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Amanda,
    You are so kind to jump in and help us out! My Zucchini are just now setting on blooms in the garden and we will have nice Zucchini before long, this will be a great recipe to try. Your presentation of this recipe is awesome! Hope you are having a great week.

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words 😀 I was thrilled to be able to help out and can’t wait to try her carrot cake donuts – especially since my carrots seem to be cooperating this year!
