Slice up your zucchini into rounds, approximately 1/2-3/4 inch thick.
Place in a greased casserole dish.

Finish off with a healthy dose of that amazing mozzarella cheese. And put that puppy in the oven until nice and melty.

I made this for dinner last night it was amazing.
Thank you for the positive feedback Jennifer. So glad you enjoyed it. Hope you’ll visit often. 😘
