Zucchini Lasagna

Fred Alam


Well its that time of year. I have enough zucchini from the garden to feed an army. Here is a great and tasty way to use up some of that prolific zucchini. This recipe is for one pan of lasagna. However you can do as I did and make enough for 5 or 6 pans and freeze them for baking at a latter time. I use the the half steam table foil pans with foil lids. they work great. I have had people who do NOT like zucchini eat 2 or 3 helpings of this.
On a safety note, if you use a Mandolin to slice your zucchini PLEASE use the guard and be careful. We don't want to add any sliced fingers to the recipe

How to Make Zucchini Lasagna


  • 1The Filling:
    In a large bowl, mix well with a large spoon all three cheeses, parsley, basil, oregano, garlic, salt & pepper, and 3 eggs. Set aside.

    In a large frying pan heat vegetable oil. Ina shallow bowl mix the rest of the eggs (2) and milk. Whisk them together. Dredge the zucchini slices into the flour and then dip in the egg & milk. Place the coated zucchini slices into the medium hot frying pan. let fry for about a minute or less and then flip and do the same to the other side. When it's done remove to paper towel or parchment paper to let cool. continue until all the zucchini is done.
  • 3Assembly:
    In a foil, half steam table pan put a thin layer of sauce, on top of that place a layer of the prepared zucchini slices to completely cover the sauce. On top of the zucchini spread a layer of the cheese filling, then coat with another layer of sauce. Repeat this sequence to make 3 or 4 layers. On the top layer of sauce sprinkle some grated parmigiano cheese. Cover with foil lid and freeze or bake.
  • 4Baking:
