Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
  2. In a shallow, medium bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, and oregano. Set aside 2/3 cup of the mixture.
  3. Lightly beat 2 egg whites with 2 teaspoons water in a small bowl. Dip zucchini slices in the egg whites, then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Arrange coated slices on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, parsley, and the remaining 6 egg whites.
  5. Spread 1/2 the tomato sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish (or aluminum pan if planning to freeze).
  6. Layer with 1/2 the zucchini, 1/2 the ricotta mixture, and 1/2 the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, and top with remaining bread crumb mixture.
  7. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven or wrap tightly and freeze to bake at a later date. Serve warm.
