Cheesy Squash

I'm a retired police officer and now a deputy sheriff who loves to cook. But with my busy schedule, I must rely on speedy side dishes like this one. The squash retains its fresh taste and cooks to a perfect tender crispness. You can give this cheesy treatment to other fresh veggies, too. It's so quick that I make some variation of it a few times a week. Everyone loves it!

Ingredients

  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small yellow summer squash
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Cut zucchini and yellow squash into 1/4-in. slices. Place in a greased shallow 1-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with cheeses. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-10 minutes or until squash is crisp-tender and cheese is bubbly. Serve immediately.
