Top with slices of tomato and sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt.
Lay two slices of cheese on top and drizzle with sriracha of herbs
Note: You could use shredded cheese as well, and if you aren’t into spicy, sub the hot sauce for fresh or dried herbs such as basil, oregano and garlic.
Repeat the layers of zucchini, tomatoes, salt, cheese and sriracha or Herbs

Place casserole dish in the preheated oven uncovered for 25 minutes.

Extract all liquid again.
