1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup finely grated mozzarella (organic dairy is always best!)
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
(…I say it’s OK to use pre-made seasonings and sauces … they will save you time. Just ensure they are sugar-free and not loaded with additives. Raw and organic are always preferred.)
- Preheat oven to broil.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add zucchini and cook, flipping once, until golden, about 1-2 minutes on each side; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Place zucchini rounds onto a large baking sheet. Top each zucchini round with marinara, mozzarella.
- Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes.
- Serve immediately, sprinkled with Italian seasoning, if desired.
