Dash each salt and black pepper
3 tablespoons shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
Optional toppings: red pepper flakes, fresh basil

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Slice off and discard the stem ends of the zucchini. Slice into 1/2-inch rounds, and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine crushed tomatoes with seasonings. Mix well.
  5. Blot excess moisture from zucchini. Top with seasoned tomatoes, and sprinkle with both types of cheese.
  6. Bake until tomatoes are hot and mozzarella has melted, about 3 minutes.
