  • 2teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4small zucchini or summer squash (slender ones, about 6 inches long), halved lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper
  • Grated Parmesan cheese1 cup or more, to taste
  1. Preheat broiler. Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet or pan with an ovenproof handle. Add garlic and sauté over medium-low heat for several minutes, but don’t let garlic brown.
  2. Place zucchini halves facedown in garlic butter and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until zucchini are just slightly tender when poked gently with a fork.
  3. Turn zucchini over and sprinkle generously with cheese. (Don’t worry if cheese spills into the pan. It will melt into a delicious crust.) Cook for just a minute or 2 more, then transfer skillet to broiler. Broil for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve hot.
