How to prepare zucchini parmigiana without bechamel

Wash and dry the courgettes, cut them into long and fairly thin slices, then fry them in a pan with plenty of hot seed oil.

When the courgettes are browned evenly, drain and lay them on absorbent paper so that they lose the excess grease, then keep them warm.

In a pan with extra virgin olive oil, fry the onion and the crushed garlic clove.

When the onion is golden brown, remove the garlic and add the peeled or fresh tomatoes.

Stir with a wooden spoon and cook for about ten minutes, then salt and pepper the sauce.

Lightly grease the oil pan and form a first layer with the sauce, then a layer of fried zucchini and a second layer of sauce.

After sprinkle with parmesan, a few leaves of basil and a few slices of mozzarella.

Continue in this order until all the ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of mozzarella and parmesan.

Spread a few flakes of butter on the surface and cook in a preheated oven for about a quarter of an hour and then serve on the table.
