  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • Coat 8”*8” baking pan lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Arrange zucchini slices in single layer on baking sheet. Spray lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Broil 8 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic, and cook 4 minutes longer, or until meat is no longer pink. Stir in marinara sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Sauce will be very thick.
