  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
  • Wash the outside of the zucchini with a vegetable brush under cold water; then cut off the top and bottom. 
  • Cut the zucchini in half (horizontally); then cut each half into thirds (vertically) so you get six slices per zucchini. 
  • Next, combine the breadcrumbs, cheese and oil in a small bowl. 
  • Place the zucchini slices in an oven safe baking dish or on a sheet pan; then sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top of each slice. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the zucchini is tender and the breadcrumbs are light brown in color.
