  2. Slice the zucchinis lengthwise into thin strips using a mandoline or a sharp knife.

  5. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned. Drain excess fat.
  6. Stir in the marinara sauce, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  7. In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with half of the parmesan cheese.

  9. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese over the top layer.
  10. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
