To make Grilled Zucchini Parmesan Recipe, there is a special mood required; the same as for Risotto .
If you are in a hurry this one is not recomended. I am not saying that you must sing Nessun Dorma in the kitchen but just take your time.

I suggest you enjoy both cooking and eating. Celebrate food and enjoy.

Once Parmigiana is done, you will experience the amazing flavours of grilled zucchini, three cheeses and Tomato SalsaΒ  ( the best spaghetti sauce, ever ) and you’ll be glad to experience the flavours of this excellent and frugal Italian dish.
Bulgur is an optional ingredient. If you have rice or any precooked grains leftovers, you may use them instead. Just be sure to have 1 Β½ cup of them.
