Exquisite zucchini goulash with eggs, ricotta cheddar, Parmesan, plum tomatoes, bread, and basil. Zucchini ricotta layers.

In my parent’s nursery, there carries on with The Beast, a 5 foot tall zucchini plant that puts out 2 full-sized zucchinis daily.

Indeed, even with all the incredible zucchini plans we have, it’s difficult for three individuals to devour 14 zucchini every week! (There’s likewise a pattypan squash plant.)

So around this season I’m continually searching for approaches to go through my flooding vegetable cabinet of zucchini.

This is a simple to-make layers like breakfast meal with ground zucchini, tomatoes, basil, ricotta, and Parmesan. (The tomatoes and basil are developing like distraught now as well.)

All things considered I don’t know what to call it. Breakfast goulash appears to fit on account of the eggs, however we had this for lunch. You could likewise consider it a layers.

It resembles a frittata however it’s prepared, not made on the burner (however I’m certain you could make a frittata out of it). The motivation for it originates from a “cuajado”, or a heated frittata famous in Sephardic cooking. This isn’t a cuajado, however the flavors are there, and they’re stupendous together.
