Here is a different approach of playing the QGD as black. A general idea after Qxe7 is to play Nb6, Be6 followed by 0-0-0. I don't know if this variation has a name but Nh5 seems to be popular and has a good score for black compared to 0-0 according to the Lichess masters database.

Are there any good resources where I can learn this variation.

       [FEN ""]
       [White ""]
       [Black ""]

       1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 Be7 5. cxd5 exd5 6. e3 c6 7. Bd3 Nbd7 8. Qc2 Nh5 9. Bxe7 Qxe7
