Zucchini Parmesan (Italian)

This dish goes well with basmati rice or pasta.
  • 5 or 6 zucchini, about 1 ½ pounds altogether
  • Flour
  • ½ cup olive oil, approximately
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce (homemade or jar)
  • ½ pound mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

  1. Trim the ends of the zucchini and cut them into lengthwise slices about 1/8 inch thick. Dip into flour and fry in hot oil until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Arrange a layer of fried zucchini on the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Cover with some spaghetti sauce, top with slices of mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Repeat the layers until all the ingredients are used, finishing with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden and the sauce is bubbling.
