Zucchini is a very healthy vegetable that should certainly be in the diet of every person. However, most often, zucchini is simply fried in oil in a pan, which minimizes its benefits. When fried in a pan, zucchini absorbs a lot of oil, and this significantly increases the calorie content of the snack dish. If you cook baked zucchini, then the use of fat can be reduced to a minimum, and this will practically not affect the taste.

Zucchini with cheese in the oven is the perfect appetizer or garnish. Slightly crunchy and very tender baked vegetables simply cannot fail to please. And this delicious and fragrant dish is prepared simply and quickly.
