Layer zucchini, cheese and bacon and bake! And get this wonderful lunch, a little different from the one you are used to. It was my first time too and I'm thrilled. This amount is enough for two.


  • one large zucchini cut in strips
  • 100 g of yellow cheese cut into strips
  • 100 g cubed mozzarella
  • 100 g smoked bacon on strips
  • a little garlic
  • 5-6 tbs tomato puree (if desired)


  1. Cut the zucchini into thin strips lengthwise. Add salt to the pieces and leave for 30 minutes to release the excess water. Gently squeeze them and wipe off the water.
  2. Then grease a smaller casserole 22 x15 and arrange 4 pieces of zucchini on the bottom. 
  3. Put yellow cheese and mozzarella and 3 strips of bacon on top. Continue arranging the moussaka in that order. 

  4. Put 2-3 cloves of chopped garlic between. There is no need for salt. If wanted, add 1 tbs of tomato puree at every layer. I didn't add because I didn't have one but I think it will make the taste even better.
  5. Cover the casserole with foil and bake for 1 hour at maximum temperature.
  6. After baking, leave to cool for 15 minutes and serve.
  7. Goes great with lettuce salad.
