A wonderful vegetarian dish that everyone will love. Courgettes are coated in a Parmesan crumb, pan-fried with mozzarella and served with tomato sauce.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
I baked them for around 20 minutes at 375, turning them over halfway through the baking time, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Served over pasta with the sauce and mozzarella for an easy and quick meal! - 02 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I put my zucchini slices in a bag with flour first so the egg would stick better. This was a tasty side dish. - 20 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was easy and just what I was in the mood for! I had one medium-size zuke so I cut the crumb mixture in half--1/4 c. each of bread crumbs and parm and 1/2 tsp. garlic salt. It still ended up being more than enough. I also used 1/4 c. olive oil for frying and it was perfect. I didn't serve them with sauce, but ate as a snack with the melted cheese and it was delicious! - 15 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
