Ingredients

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup grated fontina
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano
  • 1 cup plain dried bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Coat the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with extra-virgin olive oil. Arrange zucchini slices on the bottom of the dish and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Evenly pour 1/3 cup of the heavy cream and sprinkle with 1/3 of a cup of mozzarella, 1/3 cup fontina and 2 tablespoons of the Romano. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of the bread crumbs.
