Making Pumpkin Lasagna
Wash the zucchini and slice into finger-thick slices lengthwise. Fry both sides in olive oil in a pan, then drain on kitchen paper. Or, alternatively, brush the slices with olive oil, add a little salt and roast them on the top shelf with the grill function in the oven. However, this takes longer.
Chop the onion for cooking and sauté in a little olive oil in a pan until translucent. Mince the garlic and sauté a little. Add the minced meat and fry until it crumbles. When the color of the meat turns, season with salt, pepper and ground red pepper, add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, mix and sweat for a minute. Add the tomatoes and season to taste with oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and paprika. Cook for 10 minutes on low heat, add the chopped parsley last.
Mix cream cheese with milk, optionally with sour cream. Season with salt, pepper and a little nutmeg, mix with about 50 g of spread cheese.
Line a lasagna dish or other casserole dish with the zucchini slices. Spread a few tablespoons of chopped tomato sauce, a layer of cream cheese sauce and zucchini slices on top. Keep layering until all the ingredients are gone. The top layer should be tomato minced meat sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake the zucchini lasagna in a preheated 200°C top/bottom oven for about 30 minutes until golden brown.
A small fresh salad goes well with it.
