2 zucchini – total weight one pound
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
4 teaspoons olive oil – divided use
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 pound grape tomatoes
4 ounces part skim mozzarella
4 tablespoons parmesan
Just cut a zucchini in half lengthwise and trim a little off the bottom so it sits still in a baking dish.
Scoop out the center where the seeds are with a spoon.
Brush the surface with a mixture of crushed garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Arrange halved grape tomatoes into the grooves, and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
Remove and place diced mozzarella in between the tomatoes, place them back in, but now under the broiler until golden and bubbling.
drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkling of grated parmesan.
