These are so quick and easy to make. When I’m sick of zucchini bread, I just pull this little number.
You can eat this year round, but we enjoyed these local veggies from the farmer’s market this summer and fall. I have no words, my taste buds are still hummin’.
What you need:
1 Summer squash
Handfuls of shredded Parmesan cheese
Dash of pepper
How to cook it:
1. Slice the squash and/or zucchini.
2. Place squash/zucchini in lovely military rows on baking sheet sprayed with olive oil.
3. Sprinkle with a bit of pepper and a hearty serving of Parmesan cheese. NO SALT! The cheese makes it salty enough, if you add the salt it will make it too salty!
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and melted.
(The crisper the vegetable, the better it tastes.
You’ll never have trouble getting your kids to eat vegetables with this treat.

I’ve never tried it like that – I’ll have to give it a whirl. I love zucchini, and if it includes cheese, I’m in!
That’s great! You cooked squash for me while I was visiting you, I loved! I didn’t know it workd with the zucchini. As it’s difficult to find squash here in Brasil, I’ll try zucchini!!
Of course we don’t do cheese here, but roasted fruits like zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, bell pepper — tasty treats, even with nothing on them! We will skewer them along with marinaded tofu cubes made at home) for great hot treats after school. The marinade changes what “flavor” you feel like, whether it’s spicy Thai, Indian curry, or Mexican…very flexible, compassionate, and HEALTHY.
@Fabricio—-yes, try it with zuchinni.
@Heidi—this one is quick and easy and I think the girls would really like it!
