Just like everyone else right now, I'm overloaded with zucchini! I've been searching Pinterest and the Internet for some interesting recipes. I found this baked Parmesan recipe the other day that was a big hit , and it was easy easy to make too. It did require the use of oven, but I worked early in the morning, so I wouldn't heat up the house too much.

It tasted amazing when it first came out of the oven because it was sizzling and crispy, but I also put some in the refrigerator, reheated and it was still very very good.
The original recipe that I found on Jo Cooks called for some Panko breadcrumbs along with the Parmesan cheese for the coating. Truthfully, I believe they do sell Panko Gluten free breadcrumbs, but I didn't bother to even try to find them. Ive stopped eating grains ( 3 months) and after all who needs the extra carbs? The recipe came out great and no one missed the breadcrumbs.
This is a great way to eat zucchini. Everyone will love it because it comes out of the oven so nice and crunchy, you may not even realize you are eating zucchini. Let's face it zucchini is everywhere right now so its a convenient and economical buy at the farmer's markets. If you are growing your own, you are probably overloaded.
This is one of those cut, dip, dredge and bake recipes. I used coconut flour ( grain free and low carb) .
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that is mild and most people will eat it. Made this way, most people will love it!
