Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies. It hasn’t always been though. I’ve been a picky vegetable eater most of my life- usually only eating broccoli, corn and carrots. But when Kale and I got married I became brave and started experimenting with new ones. I remember the first time I tried zucchini. It was at a restaurant and it was a baked version like this recipe I’m sharing today. I fell in-love at first bite and was hooked from that point on.
This Baked Parmesan Zucchini is absolutely delicious. I love the crispy outer edges from the parmesan coating. It makes for one fabulous tasting veggie! I like to serve this as a side dish with just a piece of baked chicken. It makes for a super healthy and yummy dinner that even my kids will eat! 🙂
