Parmesan Crusted Zucchini

Tasty grilled zucchini with a crunchy parmesan cheese topping.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Slice zucchini lengthwise in to 1/2" slices. Leave skin on the zucchini (you can also use summer squash).
  2. Coat shallow cookie sheet with olive oil (or use cooking spay).
  3. Lay the zucchini slices next to each other on the cookie sheet. Be sure not to overlap the slices.
  4. Sprinkle the zucchini with salt and pepper to taste (or sprinkle a little basil for extra flavor).
  5. Place in broiler about 4" from the element and watching closely allow the zucchini to turn a nice brown. Takes about 6 minutes (don't be afraid to brown zucchini pretty good, just not black!).
  6. Pull out zucchini and sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese on top.
  7. Place back in broiler for 1 to 2 mintes, just enough to brown the parmesan cheese and make it crusty, but do not burn.
  8. Scoop out on to plate and serve.

Very good. My daughter dipped the zucchini in whipped egg whites and coated with flaxseeds before baking and adding parmesan cheese. She liked the added texture.
