Baked zucchini with marinara and melted cheese is about to save your weeknight dinner routine. It’s vegetarian, gluten free, and packed with flavor. Best of all? It’s insanely satisfying. Honestly, I feel like I’m eating a veggie pizza with this one.
Baking the zucchini like this will transform the texture of the squash into something creamy — you won’t even need a knife to cut it! Try to use smaller zucchini if you can find them, as they will cook evenly and quickly.
My favorite way to serve the zucchini is with mixed greens dressed simply with olive oil, salt and pepper. But of course, you can serve this on it's own as an appetizer, side dish, or main course! So go ahead, give this a try, and enjoy this light summer meal, guilt free, any night of the week!
