How to Make Zucchini and Tuna Lasagna

Start the recipe by preparing the ingredients: wash well and slice 1 zucchini to a uniform thickness, about 2 mm. For this it is best to use a mandolin although, if we do not have one, we can do it with a knife. Separately, drain 400 g canned tuna, shred it a little and set it aside.
