Everyone loves this quick and crispy low carb parmesan zucchini recipe.

Ingredients for Baked Parmesan Zucchini 

Oven Roasted Zucchini need only 5 common pantry low carb ingredients that you probably already have on hand:

  • Zucchini – the star vegetable of this recipe. Use small to medium zucchini because they’re less watery.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Parmigiano Reggiano is my absolute favorite. It completes the flavor in this zucchini recipe making the top super crispy. 
  • Olive Oil – Any oil you have on hand works just as fine, but I prefer using extra virgin olive oil for some extra flavor. 
  • Italian Seasoning – My favorite summer seasoning that I often use to add flavor to my protein or salads. I love to make a batch of homemade Italian seasoning and keep in my pantry.

Tips for The Best Crispy Roasted Parmesan Zucchini

Zucchini is one of those versatile vegetables that can be used in different low carb recipes, but if cooked wrong can get watery and super soggy. Here are a few tips on how to always get perfectly roasted zucchini:

  1. Cut the zucchini in ½” inch slices. This is the perfect size that works in this recipe.
  2. If your zucchini looks watery, pat dry with clean paper towels to reduce the moisture.
  3. Do not salt the zucchini before baking to prevent them from getting too salty.

How to Store Baked Parmesan Zucchini

I highly recommend eating baked parmesan zucchini fresh, warm straight out of the oven. If you prefer storing them, I suggest using an airtight container and arrange the zucchini rounds with paper towels between them. You’ll need to reheat them in the oven.

Unfortunately, freezing is not an option in this recipe, as I couldn’t find a way to store them in the freezer without getting soggy.
