1 tsp  grapeseed oil
8 oz  fresh mushroom slices
1 tbsp  minced garlic
1 1/2 cup  tomato sauce
0 1/2 tsp  lemon pepper seasoning
0 1/2 cup  whole wheat flour
2 tsp  salt
3 each  egg whites
1 1/2 cup  whole wheat bread crumbs
1 1/2 lb  medium zucchini
3 tbsp  grapeseed oil
0 1/4 cup  grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In medium skillet, over medium, heat 1 teaspoon of grapeseed oil. Add mushrooms and garlic, and cook until mushroom liquid is almost evaporated, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Add tomato sauce and bring to simmer. Keep warm until ready to use.
  3. In large shallow bowl, whisk lemon pepper seasoning, whole wheat flour, and salt.
  4. In second large shallow bowl, whisk egg whites.
  5. In third shallow bowl, spread breadcrumbs.
  6. Cut ends off of zucchini. Cut into 1/4" slices.
  7. Working in batches, cover zucchini slices in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip into egg whites, then cover with breadcrumbs. Set aside until all are breaded.
  8. In large skillet, over medium-high, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Fry breaded zucchini slices, in batches, until golden brown on both sides, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Add more oil to pan, if needed.
  9. Preheat broiler.
  10. In 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish, spread tomato sauce with sautéed mushrooms. Arrange zucchini slices on top of mushrooms in one layer, overlapping as necessary. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  11. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  12. Let rest for 1 minute before serving.
