Zucchini Parmesan Appetizer

Zucchini Parmesan Appetizer

"This recipe is both easy and tasty. Be sure to use freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and not the kind that comes in a can. It will make all the difference! Serve at room temperature. (Note: 1 tablespoon of dried basil may be substituted for the fresh that is called for.)"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place zucchini in a pot with about 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain zucchini and transfer to a large bowl. Mash with a fork, then transfer to a fine mesh strainer or sieve, pressing to release excess water. Return to mixing bowl.
  3. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until lightly browned being careful not to burn the garlic. Remove from heat, stir into the zucchini. Mix in the eggs, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and basil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Butter an 8 inch square baking dish with remaining butter. Pour the zucchini mixture into the dish, and spread evenly. Bake in the preheated oven until firm in the center and lightly browned on top, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool, cut into squares, and serve.

I have to disagree with the other reviews posted here. We have a very large garden that yields so many zucchini, I give them away. I was so tired of the same old "gambotto" (zucchini with onio...

I LOVE zucchini and I've used these ingredients many times but so differently. I shred the zucchini, cover with 1/2 tsp of salt and let drain for 15 min. (no cooking). Then mix everything tog...

What a tasty way to use some of the abundance of zucchini many are experiencing! My husband and I loved it. I also added a splash of cayenne pepper sauce for a little kick. I can't wait to make ...

This was awful. I waited until it cooled to cut and followed all the directions. The taste was okay, but an appetizer? The cooking time was way too much for my oven also, and I used the LOW time...

This recipe is good. There is nothing wrong with it except to say that in my opinion it takes a lot of work to get to the end result. So I give it 3 stars based on that. Thank you.

I liked this recipe. And at the same time I agree with several of the suggestions for imporvement. The first time I made it I went pretty much by the recipe. I have made it a couple of times ...

I am a great lover of nearly all food and zucchini ranks high. I made this for my main course (yes, I know it's supposed to be a side, but veggies can serve as a main course for me...and the bre...

Wasn't sure whether to rate this 3 or 4 stars. It was not bad, it was just a bit lacking in something... perhaps I would have liked it a bit more creamy - like more of a quiche. Or maybe more ch...
