I got this recipe from "Daily Recipe" I would finish the zucchini under the broiler for a couple of minutes to brown the Parmesan. I may even chop a tomatoe and sprinkle around the zucchinis for extra color. Pepper to taste

This was a great way to serve zucchini! After I added the parmesan, I put it under the broiler for a minute or two to brown. The flavour was terrific! Thank you, Bergy, for a simple and delicious way to prepare zucchini!

Very good!!! Spices up very bland zucchini. I think some tomato would be a good addition also.
