This side dish is the perfect combination of fresh zucchini, rich melted Parmesan cheese, and a delectable garlic butter glaze.

Not only is it really tasty, but it’s also quite healthy because zucchini is packed with nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants.

Grilling zucchini is a great way to elevate its natural flavor and create a tender texture that’ll have everyone coming back for seconds.

To get the best results, it’s important to choose firm, bright green zucchini with a smooth, glossy skin. You’ll also want to use high-quality Parmesan cheese and fresh garlic for an aromatic and delicious butter mixture.

Prepping the zucchini is a breeze – just slice it in half lengthwise and remove any seeds if you prefer a smoother texture.

Don’t forget to lightly oil your foil pan with cooking spray to avoid sticking. As for the garlic butter mixture, feel free to adjust the amount of garlic to suit your personal preference.

Keep an eye on the cooking time to prevent overcooking. You’ll want the zucchini to be tender but still maintain its structure.

Once the Parmesan cheese has melted, you’ll know your dish is ready to be enjoyed.
