Ingredients
  

  • 2 zucchini, 24 slices
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • spray olive oil
  • optional: garlic salt
  • Fresh Basil, chiffonade

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice your zucchini into 24 slices ¼ inch thick. You can use a mandoline or sharp knife.
  • Optional: Sprinkle your zucchini slices with salt and allow to sit for 20 minutes. Once the time has passed, blot your zucchini slices dry with a paper towel.
  • Put your zucchini slices on a baking sheet prepped with cooking spray. Spray the zucchini slices with a very small amount of olive oil. Sprinkle them with with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning.
  • Carefully spoon your Marinna sauce evenly on all 24 slices of the zucchini. Sprinkle the cheese on top. If you like garlic salt, very lightly sprinkle some on top of the cheese.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the zucchini is just turning tender and the cheese is melted.
  • Just before serving top with fresh basil.

Notes

Try to find a zucchini that is evenly wide so your pieces will be the same size.  You'll want one that is a little larger.
