Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

Directions

 

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Pat dry zucchini slices with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture.
  3. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef; cook until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add marinara sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, oregano, and pepper; simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon salt, ricotta cheese, egg, and nutmeg in a bowl; mix well.
  5. Make 1 layer of zucchini slices in the prepared baking dish. Cover with 1/2 of the sauce. Add another layer of zucchini slices. Spread ricotta mixture on top. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Add another layer of zucchini slices; cover with the remaining sauce and top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake until top is golden, about 15 minutes more.
