Baked zucchini with grape tomatoes and Parmesan cheese

The Boy has been looking around on Facebook and the interwebz a lot and finding recipes that he has been wanting me to try. This is one such recipe. I think he found it on a posting by someone on Facebook.

It's such a simple recipe and it tastes incredibly fresh and light, but tasty at the same time.

  • Zucchinis cut into half (however many you need, I used one zucchini per person)
  • Grape tomatoes (2 or 3 tomatoes per zucchini half)
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Slice the zucchinis into half, but be careful to slice them so that they are able to lay flat, so slice into the curve if the zucchini is curved.
  • Then, slice out a little bit of the curved bottom end of the zucchini along the length of it, so that it will lay flat.
  • Place all the zucchinis flat with the middle side up in a baking tray lined with aluminium foil or baking paper.
  • Drizzle a small amount of olive oil across all the zucchinis.
  • Sprinkle and thin layer of Parmesan cheese on top of all the zucchinis.
  • Salt and pepper the zucchinis to taste.
  • Place the halved grape tomatoes flat side down (so they don't roll off) on top of the zucchinis to cover the length of each zucchini.
  • Sprinkle a bit more Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Place in an oven set at 180°C and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes, until the cheese is melted but the zucchini is cooked, but still slightly crunchy.
  • Serve while still hot.

This is a super simple dish and very, very tasty. It's great as a light starter for a dinner party, which was how we served it. Everyone loved it.

I hope you enjoy this.
