Pre heat oven to 450·. Cut the squash thin approximately 1/4 inch, season with pepper and desired spices( no salt, the cheese has enough.) then pat each slice in fresh parmasean grated fine. Push down on the slice forcing the cheese to adhere to the squash, flip over and repeat. Lightly shake off extra cheese. Lightly mist a sheet pan with olive oil and place the rounds on the sheet not over crowding. Bake for 10 minutes making sure the bottom of the squash is golden brown. Flip squash over, allowing the squash to brown for about 10 minites. The squash is crispy and delicious for less calories and fat. You can use this same method using egg plant.
Mary's Zucchini with Parmesan
This is how our Test Kitchen Manager's mom prepares her just-picked zucchini. Simple and delicious, the almost caramelized zucchini are topped with a Parmesan crust. Serve Mary's zucchini like a wedge of pizza, straight from the pan, with the cheese-side up.
7 Reviews for Mary's Zucchini with Parmesan
A few months ago I had fried zucchini and fell in love, I never had zucchini before (thinking I wouldn't like it). Then I ran across this... OMG! So awesome. I took it to work (work nightshift), with the Honey Mustard Chicken... the highlight of my night...lol. Will make this 10,000 times more throughout my lifetime....lol.
I have been making this for years, of course I used butter but will change to the olive oil for a healthy diet. I also mix in Italian spice, or just Basil even Dill just pick your favorite flavor. I also like the zucchini dipped in FF Ranch, Marinara or Salsa mixed FF sour cream. Just use your imagination and you will find many different ways to serve this. It is really a all purpose side dish.
This is an easy way to add vegetables to a carb-laden Italian dish. I served this as a side with turkey cutlets with pasta and mushrooms.
We make this for lunch a lot. Even my 20 month old will eat it. Mine never stick together "like a pizza" which is fine. Sometimes I also use goat cheese, just top the zucchini with it after I take it out of the pan.
