  • Slice the zucchini lengthwise in 1/8-inch thick strips. Place in bowl and coat with salt.

  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook onion about 2 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic.
  • Add ground beef and cook until browned.
  • Stir in tomatoes, basil, oregano, nutmeg and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes, stir occasionally, the tomatoes should break down & the sauce thicken.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Blot the zucchini dry with paper towels.
  • Use one third of zucchini strips to line 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Top evenly with 1/3 of the sauce, & shredded cheese. Place 1/2 of the remaining zucchini strips on top, then 1/2 the sauce & cheese. Repeat this process one more time: using the layers.
  • Bake about 45-50 minutes until the sauce starts to bubble.
