My husband is the grill master in our family and I wanted to make this for lunch one day. I melted the butter and garlic in a large skillet. Sauteed the zucchini for about 10 minutes or so on medium. Then put them in a baking dish topped with pizza sauce and cheese then put in the oven for 6 minutes at 350 degrees. Read More

Yummy! I really liked these. I baked them instead of grilling. I sliced the zucchini and my daughter topped with sauce pepperoni and cheese and threw them in the oven until cheese melted and zucchini was tender. I ate everyone of these!! Read More

I absolutely loved these! I would modify the recipe slightly though. There was too much butter and I even cut down the amount that was called for in the recipe already. It just needs a very light coating of butter to keep it from sticking. I also added Parmesan cheese pizza seasoning & a pepperoni on the top. Read More

A nice light (and not too fattening) way to start a meal. Also a really good late night snack. Read More

What a great idea to use up those "monster" zuchini from the garden! I also added some hot pepper flakes to the butter/garlic.........they came out great! Would make again unfortunately my kids have yet to like zuchini even this way. Oh well their loss! Read More

These were great! I did make a few changes....I didn't feel like starting up the grill for these only so I lined a baking sheet with foil and put a cooling rack on top of the foil. I dipped the zucchini in the garlic butter (both sides) and laid on top of the cooling rack. Then I made sure to put the little pieces of garlic on each slice. I put my oven on broil (high) and let them cook for a few minutes and then flipped them. I did not have any tomato sauce in the house but I did have tomatoes. So I thinly sliced a tomato and topped each slice of zucchini with one. Then I returned to the oven for a few minutes. Next I topped with a turkey pepperoni and then mozzarella cheese and returned to the oven until the cheese go bubbly. It was delicious! Read More
