The Easiest Baked Zucchini Recipe: This 3-Ingredient Zucchini Recipe Is a Keeper

When I was first learning how to cook in my early 20s, my father-in-law shared with me a simple way to cook zucchini. This easy baked zucchini recipe has stood the test of time.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 30 to 35 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 4 - 5 zucchini, sliced into rounds
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 - 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the zucchini into a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour the tomato sauce over the zucchini. Toss to coat.
  3. Cover and bake until zucchini is tender, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake another 5 minutes.

Note: You could top the zucchini with grated Parmesan instead of mozzarella.
