Zucchini Lasagna

With all the overeating because of the holidays (yeah, that’s why I’m over eating), a healthy dinner is welcome. A veggie lasagna might just fit the bill. Perfect for the busy day shopping. I hope you like it.

4 ounces parmigiana cheese
1/2 teaspoon basil

In a second bowl add marinara, Italian herbs and red pepper flakes and mix.
