Garlic-Grilled Parmesan Zucchini

A tasty delicious treat - perfect side dish to the birthday meal. This was very easy to make, even in the midst of preparing the steaks and mashed potatoes. Takes about 15 minutes to prepare and about 15 minutes to cook. One thing I would suggest doing differently is to slice the zucchini into smaller "coins", rather than the full half. It takes longer to cook and I feel the zucchini would have softened better had they been cut smaller and thinner.

Grocery List:
1 Zucchini (enough for 2 people)
2 tablespoons of butter, softened (A decreased amount of the suggested use, 2 tbsp was perfect)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Additional Needs:
Cutting Board, knife
Mixing Bowl

Start by taking your zucchini and cutting it in half lengthwise, to give you two long halves.

Then cut those halves into three sections.

Take your butter (if not softened, microwave it for about 8 seconds) and add the minced garlic and parsley in a bowl.

Mix it together and apply the butter mixture to the top of the zucchinis.

Next, sprinkle parmesan cheese over top each section.

Carefully set them on the grill/griddle and let cook for 10 - 15 minutes, until they are soft. This is where the smaller sections would have come more in handy. I ended up taking the thicker sections off and cutting the bottoms off to help make them thinner.

We very much enjoyed the taste of these, but again, would have done better if they were thinner during the preparation process - or maybe, I should have just cooked them longer!
