I love lasagna! A friend of mine gave me this idea without the seasoned meat several years ago. This recipe basically substitutes the Patty Pan Squash for the noodles. Zucchini or other kinds of summer squash could also be used. The soft vegetables are great substitutes for noodles.
There are so many different varities of summer squash. I was introduced to several of them during the years we were doing the markets in the early 2000’s. One of them is Patty Pan Squash. It kind of looks like a flying saucer or a toy top with it’s round shape and scallped edges.
Patty Pan Squash has a hint of sweetness to its flavor. For those who like a little sweeter tomato sauce, this is a perfect way to avoid added sugar and add more vegetables. You could also add some ricotta cheese to the seasoned meat if you like that in your lasagna.
