Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Parmigiana Bianca zucchine e patate!

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees celcius

500 grams Zucchini - sliced thin length ways
500 grams peeled potato - sliced thin
350 grams mozzarella thinly sliced
3 whole eggs beaten
handful of fresh basil - chopped finely
sea salt
olive oil

For bechamel:

50 grams unsalted butter
40 grams flour
500ml milk
25 grams grated parmesan
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper

Place the zucchini and potatoes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper - brush the top with some olive oil and season the top with a little salt. Place in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes until golden on top and softened. Take out of the oven, turn them over. brush on some olive oil and sprinkle of salt and allow that side to also brown for about 20 minutes.

Brush the base of a casserole / lasage dish with some olive oil. Line the base with zucchini slices and then sprinkle on a pinch or two of parmesan. Then place 4-5 slices of mozzarella. drizzle on a couple of tablespoons of the beaten egg and sprinkle on a pinch or two of fresh basil.
Place the thinly sliced potatoes on top and then repeat the process. zucchini, parmesan, mozzarella, beaten egg, basil and then potatoes. The top layer should be potatoes. When you're at the top, make sure the potatoes are also drizzled with some beaten egg. sprinke on some parmesan and thinly sliced mozzarella.

To make the bechamel, place the butter into a sauce pan! Once melted, add the flour and whisk until you don't see any white flour! Then pour in the milk! Raise heat to medium low and whisk until it begins to thicken enough to coat back of a spoon! Then pour in the parmesan, salt, pepper and nutmeg and whisk until mixed! Pour it over the parmigiana! Place in the pre-heated oven and allow to bake for 35 minutes with tin foil cover! After 35 minutes, remove the tin foil and cook for 5-10 until the top has nicely browned!

Take out, allow to rest nicely for 10 minutes as it will be piping hot! Slice and serve
