Today I have a super simple side dish for you that takes about 30 seconds to prepare and takes about 20 minutes to bake.  If your kids are a little picky on their greenery, give this a try.  The fact that it is topped in Parmesan makes it an easy sell to my kids who normally pick zucchini out of the rest of their dishes.

Parmesan Zucchini

Preheat your oven to 400*F.

Cut the ends off both ends of 2 zucchinis and then cut them in half length wise.  Place them on a cookie sheet or some sort of oven safe dish.  Next, sprinkle each one with pepper and season salt.  I would sprinkle a little more than you would normally do if you were salting your food.

Serve immediately.  It is yummy!

This makes about 4 servings.
