Baked Parmesan Zucchini
This garlic parmesan zucchini recipe is absolutely amazing! Rubbed with garlic and olive oil, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and oven roasted to perfection. This will become your favorite way to eat zucchini ever! It only requires a handful of ingredients and a few minutes of prep work, and let me tell you, it SO good. This favorite side dish is packed with flavor!
Start by slicing the zucchini as seen below. Prepare a baking sheet with foil. Because you’ll be baking this at a higher temperature, it’s best to use olive oil instead of non-stick spray. Put about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on the foil and use a napkin to spread it out evenly.
In a mixing bowl, gently toss the zucchini rounds in olive oil and minced garlic. Then, evenly spread the zucchini on the baking sheet.
Finally, top the garlic and olive oil coated zucchini rounds with oregano, salt, pepper, and grated parmesan cheese.
These baked zucchini is healthy AND delicious! It’s a great side dish with any meal (Italian, chicken, or steak). You will LOVE it with our Meatball Parmigiana or our Lazy Lasagna Recipe!! When you bake zucchini with parmesan and garlic, it will be gone in no time and that’s why I highly recommend you make extra if you’re serving more than 3 people. Everybody wants a double serving when this is made. These can be served as an appetizer with ranch dressing or marinara sauce, but they are great on their own too!
Parmesan Zucchini baked to golden perfection!
