Well, can you believe it?! It’s OCTOBER! Wow! So, as the tradition goes, let’s take a look at the previous month and see what the top five posts were here on The Road to Domestication in September.
1. Top Three “Recipes” for Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet (I’m pretty happy that this one was number one, because I worked SO HARD on that dang diet! HA!)
In my quest to keep us as healthy as possible these days, I’ve been paying close attention to the recipes I try out. Less gravy-covered, cheese-smothered, carb infested things. More clean foods, more preservative free foods, more sugar-free foods. Follow me? So when I came across a recipe for Zucchini Lasagna on Pinterest, I KNEW I had to try this one.
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1 zucchini, sliced thinly (I actually used one-and-a-half)
1 box of mushrooms, sliced (more or less to your liking – and I didn’t add these in because my hubby HATES mushrooms)
1 (24-ounce) jar of marinara sauce
1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese (optional) – can add more or less!
3 cloves garlic, minced (I used 1.5 teaspoons garlic salt instead)
Salt and pepper to taste
