Zucchini - Tomato Strata (LC)
Recipe: Zucchini - Tomato Strata (LC)
This makes 6 side-dish portions or a vegetarian dinner for 4 when accompanied by a salad. A Caesar salad would be great.
(LC) = Lo-Carb
2 or 3 medium zucchini cut into quarter-inch slices (round slices)
3 medium ripe tomatoes, sliced into quarter-inch slices
1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
2 tsp Italian dried spice mix, divided
3/4 cup of shredded parmesan
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sauté the zucchini slices in olive oil to soften them. You don't even need to flip them over. Just sauté about 3 minutes on medium-high heat until the first side starts to brown around the edges.
Take out a 9-inch square oven-proof pan. Arrange enough zucchini slices in the bottom of the pan to cover the surface. Top that with tomato slices in the same fashion. Sprinkle with one teaspoon of the Italian spices. Top with 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella. Do the same thing for a second layer. Top the second layer with the mozzarella and then the shredded parmesan. Grate salt and pepper on top to taste.
Bake the strata in the middle of your oven, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before you cut it.
