We keep getting zucchini from our CSA. We like to eat it grilled, roasted, in a pasta dish, as a pancake, but we needed a new idea… I found a photo on Pinterest that we totally took and made our own for Tomato Mozzarella Baked Zucchini, it was SO good! We sort of winged it and didn’t use a recipe, but here’s what we did…
Tomato Mozzarella Baked Zucchini
Zucchini, halved, with the seeds scraped out
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Grape tomatoes, halved
Fresh basil leaves
Boil your halved, scooped zucchinis for a few minutes to soften and to cut baking time down later. In the scooped section, sprinkle mozzarella and top with halved grape tomatoes. Sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, s&p and then drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Bake for about 15 minutes, broil for maybe 3 to 5 to get a nice crust on top. Then, sprinkle with fresh basil leaves.
