We love spending time experimenting with elaborate recipes in the kitchen. This time means so much to us and is one of our favorite activities to do together too. However, sometimes, you come home and just want to prepare a quick and easy dinner that you can just pop in the oven. This is the perfect recipe for those nights. An added bonus is that you will also have leftovers for lunch the next day.
My mom lives in Italy. In the land of pasta, everyone has their family pasta recipes. Hugo and I love this idea of family food traditions. We wanted to create our very own family lasagna to share with you. This baked salmon zucchini lasagna is it!
What we love about this baked salmon zucchini lasagna :
- It’s quick and easy to make – just prepare the ingredients and pop everything in the oven to bake!
- It’s healthy but also rich and creamy.
- It has salmon in it – one of the noblest of omega-rich ingredients.
- It has aneth in it. This spice makes this pasta so much more delicious!
- This is the perfect dish to make in the evening and eat again the next day. The leftovers may be even tastier than freshly made lasagna.
- Thos corner pieces. Is it just me or is that corner piece with the curnchy cheese on top the best?! I love that piece. (Oh, I call it by the way.) 😉
- It’s very nutrient rich – packed with chunks of fresh, organic salmon and lots of organic zucchini.
