Noodleless Lasagna

So I found yet another use for zucchini. They replace the noodles in this dish and in my opinion you wont miss them. The girls had seconds and thirds so I would say it was a hit!

4 zucchini sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1/2 a large onion diced
1 green bell pepper diced
2 cups spinach
1 lb lean ground turkey
114.5oz can diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons hummus (it makes it creamy)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 cups shredded low fat mozzarella
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon Mrs.Dash Italian herb blend
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon Mrs.Dash Onion and Herb
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt

In small saute pan heat the coconut oil. Then add breadcrumbs and seasoning and cook about 5 minutes or until brown and remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a large saute pan over medium high. Add coconut oil, onion and bell pepper. Cook until tender then add ground turkey. Add Mrs.Dash, poultry seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper. When the turkey is cooked through add hummus, spinach and can of diced tomatoes. Cook about 20 minutes then remove from heat. In 13x9 inch baking dish place a small amount of sauce on bottom of pan. Place zucchini in a row then spoon half the turkey mixture over zucchini. Sprinkle with half of the cheese then repeat. Spread breadcrumbs over top of cheese, cover and bake for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 10 minutes but don't let the breadcrumbs burn. Remove and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
