This turned out a bit soggy and slightly bitter - and definitely tasted like zucchini to my 2 kids, who vetoed it. Too bad; I thought they actully liked veggies.

Excellent!! We are big zucchini fans in my house, so this was a hit. I sprinkled a little low-fat mozzarella on top at the end of baking and it was delicious.

This was really good! I had 3 medium zucchinis from a trip to the farmer's market (I get zucchini almost every time I go), and I didn't want to make any more zucchini bread. I used seasoned breadcrumbs and probably about 1 tsp. oregano and several cranks of fresh ground black pepper. I cut my zucchini into half circles, instead of cutting it small, because I was serving it as a side dish to 5-Spice Tilapia and Sweet Potato Fries, so I wanted the zucchini to be the star. Instead of using olive oil, I sprayed an 8x8 glass dish with cooking spray, poured it all in, and put small pats of Brummel & Brown butter on top before baking. At the last 10 minutes, I upped the temp to 375, and put some mozzarella on top. It was great. Thanks for posting this!
