My zucchini plants didn’t make it this year… but my summer squash went crazy!!! Although I usually love my summer squash simply steamed or in the skillet with just a little butter, salt and pepper… that does tend to get boring after the bizillionth time you make it. So I jumped online and found some great recipes on “On My Menu.” This is one of the two that I LOVED. I will post the other one soon. This recipe is simple, delicious, and one of my favorite new ways to eat summer squash. I can’t wait to try it with some zucchini mixed in!
Parmesan Zucchini/Summer Squash
Submitted by Mindy (from On My Menu)
2-3 zucchini and/or summer squash
Parmesan cheese (I have used fresh and powdered and both are good)
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 425. Cut zucchini/summer squash in thin slices and arrange half evenly in baking dish. Place thin slices of butter on top (to taste… I used ~1.5-2 tbsp total). Sprinkle generously with garlic salt, Parmesan cheese, and pepper. Layer the rest of the zucchini and squash and repeat. Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes (until center of zucchini/squash is becoming clear). Uncover and bake 5 more minutes.
