This was such an easy side dish recipe.  I used my mandoline to slice the zucchini into uniform 1/4 inch slices.  Then I laid them out on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer.

The topping was a simple, but flavorful mixture of fresh garlic (use a garlic press to make mincing a cinch), parmesan cheese and seasonings.

I evenly distributed the topping on top of the zucchini slices and baked it until the cheese was golden brown.

It really is the perfect balance of flavor and texture.  And, my family cannot get enough of these!
