Recipe: Cheesy Scalloped Zucchini
2 medium-sized zucchinis, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup heavy cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and lightly grease a baking dish.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Pour the heavy cream into the saucepan and bring it to a gentle simmer. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Arrange a layer of sliced zucchini in the greased baking dish, slightly
overlapping each slice. Pour a generous amount of the cheese sauce over the zucchini, ensuring that each slice is coated.
Repeat the process, layering the zucchini and cheese sauce until all the ingredients are used, ending with a layer of cheese sauce on top.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5 minutes, or until the top is golden and bubbling.
Once done, let the Cheesy Scalloped Zucchini cool for a few minutes before serving.
Garnish with freshly chopped herbs like parsley or basil, if desired, and enjoy!
