    6 garlic cloves, peeled
    Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
    1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
    1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
    1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

Arrange zucchini slices over milk mixture to cover the bottom of the dish, and top with 1/3 cup breadcrumb mixture and 1/2 cup milk mixture. Repeat layers, ending with the zucchini.
