Ingredients

  • 4 large zucchini halved lengthwise
  • 2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray a baking tray or sheet with non stick cooking oil spray.
  • Arrange zucchini halves, cut side up, on the baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley and garlic in a small bowl. 
  • Pour in the melted butter, season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ⅓ teaspoon pepper (or to taste). Mix the ingredients together until the breadcrumbs absorb the butter (about 40 seconds).
  • Spoon the mixture over each zucchini half, to evenly cover. Spray the topping with a little cooking oil spray.
  • Bake for 20 minutes in the hot oven until the crust is golden and the zucchini halves are cooked through.
  • Broil for a further 5 minutes on medium heat to crisp the topping.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve as a side accompaniment to any main dish.
