I’ve seen a variations of this recipe but I this is what I did with the goodies I had in my house. I posted it on my Facebook page and got a lot of requests, so I thought I’d post it here for you guys…

Ingredients:
1lb of lean ground beef
30 turkey pepperonis
1/4 cup onions
1/4 cup green peppers
1 bag of pre-washed spinach
1 cup of non fat Greek yogurt
12 oz fresh part skim mozzarella cheese
Small jar of Wolfgang Puck Four Cheese Red Sauce
4 zucchini
Garlic Salt
Oregano

Pre Assembly:
This part takes about 20-25 minutes

*Brown ground beef, onions, green peppers and spinach together

*peel zucchini with potato peeler. Only the outer parts. Once you get to the seeds stop peeling. (I save the seedy parts for salads later in the week)

*Mix all of your browned ingredients with Greek yogurt.

Assembly:
Layer your tray as follows
Red sauce
Peeled zucchini
Browned / Greek yogurt mixture
Pepperonis (15 per layer)
Peel or cut mozzarella ( I slice the ball of cheese)
***Repeat***
Sprinkle top with Garlic Salt and oregano

Bake covered for approximately 1 hour at 375 degrees
Uncovered for 20 minutes

The secret behind the Yumminess of this recipe is for sure using fresh mozzarella… Don’t use the shredded stuff

I’ve also made this recipe with my friend Natalie’s homemade tomato sauce. Here is a link to that recipeNatalie’s Recipe
