Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Lasagne 

If you are looking for a healthier alternative to your favourite pasta dish, try this Zucchini based recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound ground turkey 
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. In a large straight-sided skillet set over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender, about 8 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, breaking up any large pieces with the back of a spoon, until brown throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until it thickens, about 20 minutes. Stir in the oregano and salt. Let cool.
  3. Slice the zucchini lengthwise into thin strips (about 1/8 inch thick). Put 5 or 6 zucchini slices, overlapping slightly, in the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Top with 1 cup of the sauce. Dot with 1/4 cup of the ricotta. Repeat the layers twice, alternating the direction of the zucchini. Top with the remaining zucchini and brush the top with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon oil. Dot with the remaining 1/4 cup ricotta and season with the black pepper. Top with the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until the lasagna is bubbling and the top is brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Book Club: If I Stay

If I Stay, written by Gayle Forman, is guaranteed to take you on a roller coaster of emotions. This book is one of a kind, and is a little bit too addicting. Once you start reading, you will not be able to put this beautifully written book down.

“Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters.

If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.”
