Kitchen Images

I’ll share some of my favorite photos from the kitchen that will help you create the meal easily.  If you have questions you can find me on @brenhaas social media or comment on my contact page. A good recipe like the Zucchini and Spinach Lasagna begins with fresh ingredients so do your best to use fresh.

Fresh zucchini is always best but for this post, I am using some from the farmers market.  I do have some zucchini diced in the freezer for such a recipe but using what is on hand. Spinach is also super easy to grow and you can use frozen from the freezer but I recommend using the fresh because it sautes nicely for this recipe.

I’ll be honest, I’ve not been super successful at growing my own garlic.  I always have a jar of the minced garlic from Costco in my refrigerator.

I am going to cut the zucchini in small bite-size pieces.

Ready for the saute in this recipe.  NOTE: I do freeze portions like this just for meal planning from the garden.

Ricotta Cheese Mix

OH WOW… got a little messy with the cream cheese mix!   It is nice not using an egg in this dish – just incase the bowl needs sampled. (wink)

First time using this product in my Lasagna – curious to see how it will bake up.

The Gluten-Free lasagna noodle sure is pretty!  It says oven ready so we will see how it goes. I can tell you it does cut back on prep time when you don’t have to cook the noodles ahead of time.

After layering the ingredients as noted in the recipe above this is what the dish looks like. Foil is placed on top for that 400*F in the Oven Air Fryer for about 30 minutes.
