Author Notes: Our recipe for lasagne avoids conventional wheat-based noodles, using instead some thinly sliced zucchini. This simple substitution makes all the difference in this dish, contributing even more flavor to a favorite of many. For a primal twist, you could even add a little cheese!Primal Palate
