I also tossed some chopped tomatoes and a little Italian seasoning on them before cooking. I put a little bit of parmesan cheese on before eating. Loved it! I love zucchini, and this was a nice quick way to prepare it! 5 minutes was perfect.


  1. Trim ends and slice zucchini in half length-wise.
  2. Place skin-side up on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from microwave and turn zucchini over. With a knife, make small cuts into the inside of zucchini.
  4. Spread butter over zucchini, and then salt and pepper to taste. Microwave for 1 more minute. You could also add other toppings at this point!
  5. Enjoy :).
