Here's a great way to prepare zucchini as a vegetarian side dish with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Very easy and quick to make.


Serves: 4 

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 5mm slices
  • 120g grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup tomato spaghetti sauce, heated

Preparation:17min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Mix together the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and garlic salt in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second shallow bowl.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat until the oil is rippling but not smoking.
  3. Dip the zucchini slices into the beaten egg then into the crumbs, and place in the frypan in a single layer. Fry the zucchini slices until golden brown, about 3 minutes, then flip them over and fry until the slices are cooked through and golden brown on the other side.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the slices and cook the slices 1 to 2 more minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
  5. To serve, spoon hot spaghetti sauce onto plates and top with fried zucchini slices and melted cheese.
