A Healthy Side Dish

Are you a fan of zucchini? It’s one of my favorite vegetables. I love that it’s so versatile, easy to cook, and tastes great! We enjoy it all year round, but I especially love it during the summer, when it’s bountiful and inexpensive. This baked parmesan zucchini is the newest way I’ve tried cooking it, and it is definitely a new favorite!  It’s delicious and simple to make, and I love the crunch from the parmesan cheese.

How To Make Zucchini Parmesan

Making this delicious side dish is as easy as it looks and is done in just a couple of steps.

Slice It – First, cut the ends off of the zucchini and then cut the zucchini into wedges.  I use a medium-sized zucchini and I can typically get about a spears from it.  Place the spears onto a baking sheet that you’ve lined with a baking mat or parchment paper.

Season It – Next, drizzling the zucchini spears with olive oil, and then sprinkle each with some grated parmesan cheese.  Lastly, sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste.

Bake It – Place them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes.  Then, switch on the broiler for only a minute or two until they’re golden brown.  Sever them immediately when they’re nice and warm.

Recipe Tip

Cut In Wedges – By cutting the zucchini into smaller wedges (I cut eight wedges per zucchini), the wedges stay crisp after being baked in the oven. They get a nice crunch from the parmesan cheese, but they stay tender on the inside.

Try Dipping Them – I think they’d be delicious dipped in marinara sauce for a delicious side dish. It would also be a perfect healthier substitute for french fries alongside all your burgers this summer!
