Number of Servings: 4


    2 medium-sized zucchini, cut in slices or half-moon slices
    2 medium-sized yellow squash, cut in slices or half-moon slices
    2-4 T chopped fresh basil (or even less, depending on how much you like the flavor of basil)
    2 T thinly sliced green onion
    1/2 tsp. dried thyme
    3/4 tsp. garlic powder
    1/2 cup + 1/2 cup low-fat white cheese (I used Pizza Cheese, which is a low-fat blend of Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano, and Parmesan)
    1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan (I would use a little less if you only have the very finely grated Parmesan from a can)
    salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Spray an 8" x 8" baking dish with olive oil or non-stick spray. Wash the squash and cut in slices or half-moon slices. Wash basil, spin dry or dry with paper towels and finely chop. Slice green onions.

Combine the sliced squash, chopped basil, sliced green onions, dried thyme, garlic powder, and both kinds of cheese and stir together until the veggies are coated with cheese and the herbs are well-distributed. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Put the mixture in the baking dish and bake uncovered for about 25-30 minutes.

When the zucchini is nearly cooked through, take the casserole dish out of the oven and sprinkle over the remaining 1/2 cup of grated cheese. Put the dish back in the oven and bake 10-15 minutes longer, or until the cheese is melted and nicely browned and zucchini is fully cooked. Serve hot.

    Nice recipe that is easy and has great flavor from basil, thyme and onion. I use lots less cheese to cut back on calories but it is still good. Thank you. - 1/8/17
