It’s the perfect side dish to add to any meal or to have as an afternoon snack. Whichever you prefer, you can be sure it’s going to be love at first bite! 🙂

While I do love zucchini prepared any way, whether that be sautéed, or in cookies, or made as a beef enchilada boat, I must admit that this baked version is my favorite. You just can’t go wrong with zucchini that is oven roasted to perfection.

Baking the zucchini means it comes out both crisp and tender, and the parmesan coating used in this recipe leaves a crispy outer edge that is absolutely to die for. You can also get the same effect from an air fryer, so if you’d rather use that then feel free to do so! The zucchini will still come out tasting just as heavenly.

  1. Yumm, that parmesan crust sounds amazing! Love this idea, such an easy and tasty way to eat more vegetables.

  2. When you say spray the tops with the non-stick spray. Is it the zucchini you’re referring to or the cooking pan?

    1. Both! I spray the pan with it and then spray the tops of the zucchini with it, so the Parmesan mixture sticks to it. It’s just a way of reducing calories instead of using oil. 🙂

  3. I tried this tonight, and after 15 minutes at 350, my zucchini was barely cooked, still mostly uncooked. I like this idea, but the cooking time is too short for veggies raised off the pan (foods always seem to take longer to cook when they are up off the pan), and I think the temp is too low.
