Zucchini and Mozarella

Does it still count as a veggie if it's loaded with cheese? These came about because I was feeling lazy. I wanted to use up the zucchini but didn't want to take the time to make zucchini fries. This might be our new favorite way to have it! It's super easy and really tasty. And probably at least a little more healthy than battered and dipped in ranch right?!  All of the seasonings and cheese can be adjusted for your tastes. This is more of a give a couple shakes of this and a few shakes of that kind of recipe ;)


1 large zucchini
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 T butter
1/2 T olive oil
1/4 cup grated mozarella


Split the zucchini down the middle. Scrap out some of the seeds and discard. Cut into slices.

Put slices in a bowl and add salt, pepper, basil and olive oil. Turn to evenly coat.

Melt butter in small saucepan that can also be put in the oven.

Sautee zucchini until about half way cooked.

Remove from stove and sprinkle with cheese. Put in oven under the broiler until the cheese is gold and bubbly.
