Baked zucchini and mozzarella

There are few things as easy and delicious as this zucchini magic trick. Slice, sprinkle, bake et voila, deliciousness. The zucchini become soft and buttery, the garlic salt gives depth of flavor, and the cheese bubbles in to a golden brown crust.

Baked zucchini and mozzarella

2 medium sized (or about 5 small) zucchini
garlic salt
olive oil
2 C shredded mozzarella cheese

Slice your zucchini up into 1/2 inch rings. Lay them out flat on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle with garlic salt and a bit of salt. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until crisp tender.

Take the pan out of the oven and sprinkle the zucchini with cheese. Turn the oven to broil and let the cheese get all bubbly and a bit browned. This should only take about 3-5 minutes.

Enjoy right out of the oven.

  2. I am SO making this for my family. I am always looking for way to get them to eat something green (besides a bean!) I have made a veggie medley with zucchini in it before that they like (very chopped up and tossed w/EVOO, basil and garlic) and they love Italian, so I am thinking they will at least give this ago! Beautifully sone pics and great post! Perfect FP!!!! Congrats! 🙂 AmberLena

  4. Made me so hungry, but the whole post, the pictures, the blog and font are so beautiful and enticing. Amazing. Makes me want to work a bit more on the ‘look’ of my blog 🙂

  5. Why didn’t I think of this! I am making it this weekend! (I would make it tonight but I doubt I’ll make it to the store. I have the veggies, but not the cheese)

  6. Your zucchini look like smilies in the last picture. I wanted to say something else but I’m rushing off to the kitchen – too hungry now after seeing your photos 😀
