Baked Zucchini with Parmesan
4 small zucchini, washed and halved lengthwise
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Arrange the zucchini, cut sides up, in an ovenproof dish large enough to hold them in a single layer. Lightly brush with the olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper. Mix the Parmesan and garlic together, then sprinkle over the zucchini.
2. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the zucchini are tender and the cheese is browned.
Prepare ahead: Step 1 can be prepared several hours in advance.
