This is so easy to make and you can adjust the spices and cheese to your taste. You can also try other spices. A very nice side dish with grilled chicken.

I made this for Labor Day. This was so easy and tasted just terrific. I used the seasonings you suggested and they were great. There are so many options for future experimentation. Thanks Denise, this is definitely one worth repeating.

Delicious! I just spread the butter and then sprinkled everything else on the one side of the zucchini and then covered it with the other half. I used garlic salt instead of minced garlic. Thanks for posting.
