"The Monterey Jack cheese is surprising in this "Italian" dish but it works better than Italian cheeses, in my opinion."

    This was a very simple and flavorful dish. My kids loved it. A different way to make zucchini. I used only half of the sauce for 3 zucchini and it was enough and also used a Italian cheese blend for the top. I served with an Italian Chicken Meatloaf and was the perfect side.

    After reading a lot of reviews for zucchini I am beginning to believe that my DH is one of the few men who loves zucchini. Having said all that I like this recipe. The red wine gives is a little lift. I did add some hot pepper flakes, and, also have added cooked med. hot Italian sausage cut in chunks. Also like Monterey Jack cheese and often substitute for other cheeses. Thanks for submitting. Now I have another zucchini recipe when the bounty hits.

    This is a delicious side dish. I'm not very experienced cooking vegetables and so I wasn't absolutely sure how to cut the zucchini. I cut them in 1/8" thick rounds and sauted them in batches until they were lightly browned. I served this with Italian bread to soak up the tasty marinara sauce. I also couldn't help but to sprinkle some parmesan cheese on the top before putting it into the oven, uncovered, for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.
