I am not a vegetarian, but I easily could be. Sometimes I wonder why I eat meat, then I guess it´s because first of all I am used to it, also it can taste good and third I believe since us humans are meat eaters it is nutritious…. Usually when I cook I make vegetarian dishes, Indian, Mexican, Italian .. If I have ground beef I use it, that is because I get it from the beef farmers next door where I live from grass fed animals that are treated well.
Anyways, I don´t eat much meat at all and when I make vegetarian dishes I surely don´t miss it flavor vise or other vise. I do love LOVE green pepper salami for my pizza though… and the Icelandic lamb is very tasty, the smoked goose is really something…:)
This dish here was going to be something like lasagna, with zucchini instead of lasagna sheets and red lentils instead of ground beef…that was just because I had an awesome zucchini and lots of cooked red lentils and I really love red lentils in lasagna.

In the oven, 220°C , half an hour or so

First some red lentils sauce, then zucchini, then cheese, then I put a little bit of basil sauce…as many layers as you like. I only had two this time.
