Zucchini Parmesan Rounds

Chef Potpie (Laurel)


This is one of our favorite zucchini recipes in the summertime when we have so many of them. It's fast, easy, and goes with just about anything. Because they are cut 1/2" the zucchini rounds come out tender-crisp with a golden parmesan topping. (If you prefer softer zucchini, you can cut them thinner.)
