Grease the oven dish with the remaining oil and divide a third of the zucchini over the bottom of the dish. Divide a third of the meat mixture over the zucchini and then a third of the potatoes over the meat. Repeat the layers twice.

Mix the eggs with the crème fraîche, half of the Prima Donna maturo and salt and pepper. Divide this mixture over the oven dish. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake the oven dish for about 30 minutes.
