How to make roasted parmesan zucchini:
You are not going to believe how easy it is to make this 3 ingredient zucchini recipe. First preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Then cut off the ends of the zucchini and cut the zucchini each in quarters lengthwise.
Next line a baking sheet with foil or with parchment paper (this is for easy clean up). I like to use a rimmed baking sheet so I don’t have to worry about the zucchini sliding off when I move it to the oven.
Place the zucchini slices in a single layer on the sheet pan. Then drizzle the zucchini with olive oil. After that, sprinkle the zucchinis with the garlic salt and the parmesan cheese.
Place the sheet pan in the oven and cook zucchini for 10-12 minutes until the zucchinis are a golden brown color. Then transfer the pan to a cooling rack.
Note: Do not over cook! Zucchini will continue to cook when it sets so you want to pull them out before they get too soft. I like my zucchini when it is still just a little crunchy. Serve immediately while they’re warm and enjoy!
Store any leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Tips for this Recipe:
- Spray your pan with a non-stick cooking spray or line with foil so that the zucchinis do not get stuck to the pan.
- Watch closely toward the end of the cook time as the smaller pieces of zucchini will cook faster than the larger pieces.
- Serve immediately as these are best when they’re hot out of the oven.
- Ensure that the zucchini are not touching on the pan so that they cook evenly.
