Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella is the perfect solution to too much zucchini. Topped with mozzarella you won’t be able to stop the kids from eating their veggies!
Does your zucchini runneth over in your garden? Or maybe your neighbor’s garden and they are graciously sharing?
If not, you will be hoping it does after giving today’s recipe a try. I don’t like zucchini, at least I thought I didn’t like zucchini, until I gave this recipe for Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella which I originally saw over at Jamie Cooks It Up. a try.
During one of my frequent visits to Utah, we were having a Wilkes family dinner and I wanted to help contribute something to the dinner. When I saw the zucchini on my family member’s kitchen counter this recipe came to mind. It was a huge hit and disappeared quickly.
Not only is it delicious but it is so easy and the perfect solution for an abundance of zucchini. I just sliced the zucchini about 1/4″ – 1/2″ thick and placed them on a cookie sheet and sprinkled them with a seasoning salt. Then just bake them for 10-15 minutes until they are crisp tender. You don’t want them to get too soft.
Pop them back in the oven under the broiler for about 3-5 minutes, just until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. How can anything covered in mozzarella cheese be bad!? It’s the perfect way to get the kids to eat their veggies!
