Mary's Zucchini with Parmesan

This is how our Test Kitchen Manager's mom prepares her just-picked zucchini. Simple and delicious, the almost caramelized zucchini are topped with a Parmesan crust. Serve Mary's zucchini like a wedge of pizza, straight from the pan, with the cheese-side up.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds zucchini, (about 4 medium), sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese, (1 ounce)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini and cook, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes, until tender and most of the slices are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve warm.
