I got this recipe from an Italian cooking magazine. The real name of the recipe is: "BRUSCHETTONI FILANTI ALLE ZUCCHINE" More than a bruschetta it is French toasts layered with zucchini, baked. It is a nice and easy side dish plus another great way of using those summer zucchini. I'm posting the recipe as it shows on the magazine although I think next time I will sprinkle it with some Parmesan cheese before baking it. The layers of zucchini and bread should be vertical, not one on top of the other one like a lasagna. Please look at the picture.

  4. Arrange the slices of bread in a buttered pan; spread over a few tablespoons of zucchini.
  5. Continue layering until you run out the ingredients.
  6. Cook the bruschettoni in oven at 180 for 25 minutes, or until they are golden on the surface.
