We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Primal lasagna

For Christmas I got a new primal/paleo (actually paleo but it works) cookbook! It is The Food Lovers Make it Paleo book. You can also find recipes on their blog.

This is a great dish when you want something hearty and warm on a winter day. You can also make it vegetarian by just adding more veggies to the sauce instead of beef.

Zucchini Lasagna

1 lb of ground beef (or any type of ground meat you would like)
3 gloves of garlic minced
1 small yellow onion chopped
1 small green pepper chopped
6 oz can of tomato sauce (be sure to get a can that has no salt added)
15 oz of tomato sauce (again no salt added)
1 tbsp of parsley (we didn't have any so we skipped this)
1 tbsp of basil
1 tbsp of oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 zucchini (we actually used 3 small ones)
1 1/4 cups of sliced mushrooms

Brown the ground beef in a large skillet.
Add garlic, onion and green pepper and saute for 5 minutes.
Stir in tomato past and sauce.
Add in the spices and bring to a light boil, then remove from the heat.

Grease a 9x13 pan.

Place a thin layer of the sauce mixture. Then a layer of zucchini, then mushrooms and then sauce. Repeat until it is all gone.

Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes covered with foil. The bake for another 15 at 35o degrees without the foil.
