Mrs.mom's zucchini with bechamel sauce


Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds zucchini peeled and cut into 1 inch thick slices
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
For the bechamel sauce:
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups plain milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
Preparation:
  • Melt the butter in a skillet then add the ground beef. Cook until browned.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat and cook for 15 min.
  • Get a 12 x 8 baking dish and arrange the zucchini slices. Pour the ground beef mix on top. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake at 300 F for 20 min.
  • Meanwhile prepare the bechamel sauce while the zucchini is cooked.
  • To prepare the bechamel sauce, melt the butter in a pot.
  • Sprinkle the flour and stir very fast by using a whisk. Let it cook with the butter for 1 min.

  • Gradually pour the milk while whisking very fast in order to make a smooth sauce with no lumps
  • Reduce the heat to low and continue stirring until the sauce thickens
  • Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
  • Now pour in the egg and whisk very quickly
  • Pour the bechamel sauce on top of the zucchini and then place the baking dish again in the oven for 20 min. or until the top looks slightly brown.
  • When done remove from the oven and leave aside for 15 min. to settle down.
I hope you all like the recipe. Please try it. It's really delicious.
