4 medium zucchini, sliced lengthwise
1-2 pounds ground beef (for the purist it should be organic, grass-fed ground beef)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups prepared spaghetti sauce (or2 cups tomato sauce with Italian seasonings)
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 green pepper, diced (optional)

Stir in tomato sauce, seasonings, and green pepper and mushroom mixture. Layer half zucchini in bottom of a lightly oiled 13×9 pan. Spoon half of ground beef and sauce mixture over the zucchini. Mix hard cheese and feta cheese. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the beef. Repeat layers of vegetables and ground beef. Top with remaining cheese.Bake uncovered, at 350°F for 30 minutes.
