  • 2 pounds - zucchini, medium
  • 1/2 teaspoons - kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoons - unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 ounces - sliced whole wheat bread
  • 4 cups - Marinara Sauce
  • 2 cups - shredded low moisture mozzarella
  • 1 cups - Grana Padano or Parmigino-Reggiano
  • 1/4 cups - chopped fresh basil
  • Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the whole zucchini, and bring back to a boil. Simmer until the zucchini are almost tender throughout, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool, and slice lengthwise into -½--inch--thick slices. Season with the salt.

    Grease a -9--by--13--inch baking dish with the butter, and fit the bread in one layer into the bottom, trimming to fit if necessary.

    Layer as follows: Spread the bread with 2 cups of the marinara sauce. Arrange half of the zucchini in an even layer. Sprinkle with half of the mozzarella and Grana Padano. Sprinkle with all of the basil. Arrange the remaining zucchini in an even layer. Spread with the remaining marinara, and top with the remaining mozzarella and Grana Padano. Bake, uncovered, until browned and bubbly, about 35 to 40 minutes.
