Ingredients

2 medium zucchini, cut in slices or half-moon slices
2 medium yellow squash, cut in slices or half-moon slices
4 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
2 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated and divided
1/2 cup parmesan, coarsely grated, plus a little more for the top
salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Spray an 8x8-inch or 8x11-inch oven-safe glass dish with your oil or a non-stick spray.

Step 3

Combine the zucchini, squash, basil, green onion, thyme, garlic powder,

Step 4

Next, slice your green onions, and combine them with the sliced squash, the chopped basil, the sliced green onions, the dried thyme, the garlic powder, 1/2 of the grated mozzarella cheese, and the 1/2 cup coarsely grated parmesan cheese, stirring it all together until the zucchini is evenly coated with the mixture.

Step 5

Season the zucchini with salt and ground black pepper.

Step 6

Place the zucchini mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Step 7

Bake the dish for about 25-30 minutes. You can cook them for a little bit longer if you want the zucchini to be softer.

Step 8

When the dish is almost cooked through, take out the glass dish from the oven and top the dish with the remaining 1/2 cup of the grated mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.

Step 9

Place the glass dish back into the oven and bake until the cheese has melted to become bubbly golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Step 10

Serve hot.
