  • Step 2

    Season both sides of zucchini slices with salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat; cook and stir zucchini slices until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Step 4

    Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce in the prepared baking dish. Layer zucchini slices, overlapping slightly, on top of marinara layer. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce over zucchini layer; top with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/4 to 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.

  • Step 5

    Continue layering zucchini, 1/2 cup marinara, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and remaining mozzarella cheese.

  • Step 6

    Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

  • Cook's Notes:

    I use a cheap mandoline slicer to cut the zucchini.

    I like to use 32-ounce bottled sauce and serve the rest over whole wheat pasta.

    Pecorino cheese can be used in place of the Parmesan.
