The Second Installment of Zucchini Invasion: Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella

I had a bit of trouble sleeping last night, so please excuse me if I am incoherent.  Every once and a while, I just CANNOT fall and stay asleep.  Last night was one of those nights:-(  I have almost made it through today, and I am hoping I saw some major logs tonight.

Anyway, I wanted to get my next newly found delicious zucchini recipe up (just in case anyone besides me has them coming out of there ears right now).  Everyone in my house really liked this one, except a certain 11 year old that decided he didn't like it (because it was zucchini) before he even tried it.  It reminded me of Garlic Bread (without all the guilt!)

Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella 

2 medium or 5 small, zucchini
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Slice your zucchini up into 1/2 inch rings.  Lay them out flat on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with Johnny's Garlic Seasoning and a bit of salt.  Now, I didn't have this seasoning, so I used some Lawry's Garlic Salt I had on hand and it worked great, but DO NOT add salt too if you do this!  

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until zucchini is crisp-tender.  

Take the hot pan out of the oven and sprinkle the zucchini with mozzarella cheese.  Place the cookie sheet back into the oven, and let the cheese get all bubbly and a bit browned (3-5 minutes).  Watch carefully!  Things go from fine to burnt to a crisp quickly under the broiler!
