Meatless Meal: Zucchini Parmesan and Angel Hair Pasta


2 large zucchini's cute in half and then sliced into 1/4" to 1/2" slices
3 cups marinara sauce If you have extra sauce, reserve to serve on top of the Angel Hair pasta. When using this recipe, do not add mushrooms.
1/4 cup flour
Olive oil for frying
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (you can substitute mozzarella if you prefer) shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a heavy skillet. Add 4 tbsp. olive oil. Salt and pepper zucchini slices lightly. Coat each slice with flour. Add to hot oil and fry golden brown, over medium, on both sides.

Place fried slices on paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Fry until all the zucchini slices are done.

Place approximately 1/4 cup of sauce in a baking dish. Place one layer of the zucchini slices and add 1/2 cup of the sauce. Alternate until all the zucchini slices are in baking dish. Be sure to end with the marinara sauce on top. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of marinara sauce.

Cover with foil paper and place in hot oven to bake for approximately 1/2 hour.

Serve with cooked Angel Hair pasta.
