Brown meat. Cook sliced zucchini (without peeling it) till tender but not mushy. Cook rice separately and drain.
Combine rice and ground beef and add to them allspice, cinnamon, salt and tomato sauce - reserving some of the tomato sauce to spread over the top.
In a casserole dish spread a layer of cooked zucchini slices. On top of them make a layer of the meat and rice mixture. Repeat procedure so that you have two layers of meat and rice and the top is a layer of zucchini again. Over the top spread the rest of the tomato sauce.
Bake in the oven just until hot all the way through.
Serve with chilled yogurt.
