Zucchini Parmesan

Ingredients

1 large zucchini
3 tablespoons eggs beaten with milk
1 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Reggiano cheese
1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese
16 ounces (2 c.) tomato sauce

Preparation

1
Slice zucchini into 1/4 inch thick slices.
2
Sprinkle each slice lightly with salt, and place in a colander for 30 minutes. This causes the excess moisture to come to the surface and drip off. Although not essential, this makes for a firmer dish in the end.
3
Dip each slice first in eggs, then into crumbs. Add oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute zucchini in oil until golden brown on both sides.
4
Place one layer of breaded zucchini in a 2 quart casserole; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella then cover with tomato sauce.
5
Repeat with the rest of the zucchini and cheese to the top.
6
Bake uncovered in preheated 350F oven for 30 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted.
