  1. Every recipe i
    tried was delicious and simple to make. thanks for sharing all these wonderful dishes with us.

  2. Loving your recipes, especially all EZ PZ they all seem to be. Just one question in reference to the Parmesan Garlic Roasted Zucchini. The recipe reads to place on top rack. Does this mean top rack positioned in the center of the oven, or do I need to move the top rack up to the highest position on my oven.
    Txs a bunch for your reply and I’m looking forward to more of your amazing recipes.

  3. Hello. We are trying your recipe for the first time tonight. The instructions state to set the oven to broil, but does not specify Hi or Low. Which is it? Out of precaution I set it to Low since it’s a vegetable so we shall see if I guessed right. I was trying to find a low carb way to bake these and still have flavor, that is how I found your recipe. Most recipes I came across used bread crumbs, panko and/or flour as a coating. Hope my family enjoys this. I shall follow up soon.


  4. can you use a different kind of cheese instead of grated parmesan or can I sprinkle with the dry parmesan that comes in a shaker container?

  5. I would not recommend using parchment paper under the broiler, due to the risk of fire. I speak from experience. LOL. I would use foil which is easier to manipulate or just grease the sheet pan.

    1. 5 stars
      Pamela, so true! I just found that out. I put it on broil high and when I checked it, the parchment paper was in flames! I was able to salvage the zucchini which was delicious! I love Melanie’s recipes.

      1. I should have read all of the comments before I tried this recipe. I had the same issue with the parchment paper.
