Recipe Steps

45 min

  • Step 1

    Peel the zucchini into wide strips and add to a bowl along with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Toss to combine and set aside for 20 minutes to allow the salt to draw out any excess moisture.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Whilst the zucchini is resting, add the tomatoes, Italian seasoning and chili flakes to a small pan. Crush the garlic into the pan and stir well to combine. Bring to a gentle simmer for 3-4 minutes until fragrant. Set aside.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Add the three cheeses to a mixing bowl with a pinch of black pepper and stir well to combine.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Step 5

    Gently squeeze the zucchini and pour away any excess liquid. Blot dry with kitchen paper to remove any excess salt and moisture. Arrange a layer of overlapping zucchini strips in the base of an ovenproof dish.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Spoon over 1/3 of the tomato mixture in an even layer.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Sprinkle over 1/3 of the mixed cheeses.
    Step 7
  • Step 8

    Cover with another layer of overlapping zucchini then repeat with the tomato and cheese until you have three layers.

            Delish. Added sparingly smoked sausage and ham for added flavour. Definitely a regular lunch. 👍

                We made this last night & really enjoyed it. While we were eating, thought it would help our protein, fat count & flavour if we would have added some crumbled Italian sausage. Will definitely make this layered dish again!👍

                  I REALLY enjoyed this dish. For me, the servings are very large (maybe not so much for others). I paired this rotisserie chicken, and it was the perfect meal. I haven’t had Italian food in so long, and this was perfect!!

                  I don't understand how the amount of zucchini called for gives you enough strips/ribbons for multiple layers. I used a mandoline to slice, maybe mine are a little too thick but I definitely will need 3 times the amount of zucchini called for here.

                    Use a potato peeler to make ribbons.

                  Taste like lasagna! I was out of cheddar so used pepper jack and added G Huges bar-bQue sauce sugar free to tomatoes for spicy flavor. Awesome
