Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler. Coat both sides of zucchini slices with cooking spray. Sprinkle zucchini and tomato slices with Italian seasoning and pepper.

  • Place zucchini slices on the unheated rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat about 8 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning once halfway through broiling.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese and garlic. Place tomato slices on broiler pan next to zucchini slices. Sprinkle tops of vegetable slices with bread crumb mixture. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes more or until topping is golden.
