  • 2 zucchini medium
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • 1 tsp salt more or less to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper more or less to taste


  • First, take a baking sheet and line it with foil.
  • Second, brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the foil coating it evenly.
  • Then slice the zucchini about 1/3 of an inch thick and spread it out to cover the baking sheet. Place the zucchini slices close together.
  • Next, drizzle or brush the zucchini with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Salt and pepper the zucchini to taste.
  • Then, spread the minced garlic over the zucchini so each piece has some on it.
  • Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over it all and then top with slices of jalapeño. The jalapeño is optional. Leave it off if you don't like spice.
  • Take the foil with the zucchini and toppings and place it on the grill on a medium heat for 20 minutes or until edges begin to brown and cheese melts.
  • OR bake in a 400 degree (F) oven for 20 minutes or until edges are brown. Keep an eye on it.
