This is a great dinner that the whole family loved! My 1 year old ate an entire piece himself! Again, I stress that I am not a measurer! These are all guestimates. I am somewhat old school when it comes to cooking, I just throw stuff together. This was just delicious and packed with good stuff.
Brown the ground beef and drain the grease. Spray the pan with olive oil and add the garlic. After 2 minutes add the remainder of the veggies, except for the zucchini. Then add a handful of fresh basil chopped. In a bowl mix 1 egg and add about 16 oz of part skim ricotta cheese. Mix in parmesan, garlic powder, pepper, salt, & parsley with the cheese and egg mixture. Add the beef and cheese mixture to the cooking veggies. Spray a 9x13 dish with nonstick spray, then add a layer of thinly sliced zucchini. Put half of the meat, cheese, and veggie mixture on top of the zucchini. Add a layer of sauce and repeat. Then top off with a layer of zucchini and the mozzerella cheese. Bake at 350 covered for 1 hour.
Caution: It came out pretty watery, so you may want to cook the veggies a little longer to evaporate the water, or cook uncovered and add the cheese the last 10 minutes. I just used a baster to suck out the water once a couple of pieces were removed.
