If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love EASY recipes.  Especially easy and delicious recipes.

Well, thanks to my daughters 4-H project this year, we have had lots of delicious zucchini from our garden.  And although I love my grilled zucchini salsa, I am always open to new ways to enjoy zucchini.  During open judging, I heard the judge suggest to several kids that they slice open their zucchini, put a cheese slice on top and microwave it for 3o seconds.

Although I liked that idea, I thought I could probably bump up the flavor a bit.  So this is MY version:

Cheesy Zucchini Bake

serves 4

2 small to medium zucchini (the fresher the better)

2-4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

olive oil

sea salt

cracked pepper

Step one:  Preheat oven to 350.  Slice each zucchini in half and place on a baking sheet.  Cover with an ounce or two of cheese.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Zucchini

Step two:  Bake 15 minutes or until zucchini is soft and cheese is melted but not burned.

Baked Zucchini

Enjoy!  This makes a terrific side dish or even a yummy light lunch.  I cut one of the halves into small bite sized pieces and my son gobbles it up – which is fantastic because I haven’t gotten him to eat zucchini any other way yet!
