I’ve made a lot of zucchini dishes lately – from the zucchini parmesan crisps to the baked parmesan zucchini to the one pot zucchini mushroom pasta, but nothing beats this one here. I mean with a 10-minute cook time, I don’t think anything can top this.

Even Butters hovered around me in the kitchen and during the photo shoot the entire time, and he NEVER does this. He even tried to jump on the table at least a dozen times. It was quite distracting to watch all of this unfold since his short legs could never reach the table. Poor thing, but still, so cute.

I think what really attracted Butters’ attention is the buttery goodness of all this. Yes, these zucchini rounds get cooked in melted butter along with lemon zest and thyme. From there, you’ll flip them over and finish them off until they’re golden brown.

When you’re ready to serve, go ahead and sprinkle on that Parmesan goodness along with freshly squeezed lemon juice. It’s so easy and simple, but so good. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!

    This recipe looks so delicious, and simple to boot. Zucchini is one of the few veggies I generally do not care for, but this recipe includes other incredients I love. Think I’ll give it a shot!
