Baked Parmesan Zucchini, a simple, addictive side dish which is quick & easy using just TWO ingredients!

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that is bought abundantly, thanks to my mother in law. I hesitate to even call this a recipe because it requires only two ingredients and about five minutes to prepare but it sure is a yummy side dish that we all munch on.

If you want to get all wild and crazy, you can sprinkle your zucchini slices with a bit of garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper before spooning on the Parmesan. Of course, if you elect to do that, budget an additional 30 seconds of prep time into the long and arduous process of making this recipe. (ha ha)

  • 3-6 medium-sized zucchini
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic salt & freshly ground black pepper, optional


Place oven rack in center position of oven. Preheat to 180 °. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash and dry zucchini, and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices. Arrange zucchini slices on prepared pan, with little to no space between them. If desired, lightly sprinkle zucchini with garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use a small spoon to spread a thin layer of Parmesan cheese on each slice of zucchini. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until Parmesan turns a light golden brown. Serve immediately.
