In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add meat and cook for 5 minutes. Break up meat by stirring. Incorporate tomatoes, tomato paste and herb; add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and let simmer 30 minutes on medium-low heat.

Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

Mix the 4 shredded cheeses together in one bowl.

Spread out zucchini slices on baking sheets and cook in the oven for 12–15 minutes. Transfer to a colander and let drain for 5 minutes.

Cover bottom of a lasagna dish with meat sauce. Arrange zucchini slices slightly overlapped in a single layer. Top with meat sauce and cheese. Repeat layers: zucchini, meat sauce and top with cheese. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Tips

Choose extra-lean meat to avoid excess liquid and fat. The recipe can be easily frozen before or after cooking. If uncooked and frozen, cook at 325 °F (160 °C) for 1 hour 15 minutes; for precooked and frozen, cook 15 minutes less.

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack.
