Savor the Crunch: Pan-Fried Zucchini Rounds Topped with Cheese (Page 2 ) | May 8, 2024


  1. Prep the Zucchini:
    • Wash the zucchini thoroughly under cold running water. Trim off the ends and slice the zucchini into rounds, about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Pan-Fry the Zucchini:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the zucchini rounds to the skillet in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
    • Sprinkle the zucchini rounds with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and tender-crisp.
  3. Add the Cheese:
    • Once the zucchini rounds are cooked to perfection, sprinkle them evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.
    • Cover the skillet with a lid or aluminum foil and let the cheese melt for 1-2 minutes, until it is gooey and bubbly.
  4. Garnish and Serve:
    • Remove the lid or foil from the skillet and turn off the heat. Using a spatula, transfer the pan-fried zucchini rounds topped with cheese to a serving platter or plate.
    • Sprinkle the dish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
    • Serve immediately while the cheese is still hot and gooey, allowing your guests to enjoy the irresistible crunch of each zucchini round.
