Around this time of the year, many home gardens are filled with zucchini, and many of the very, very large. Here is a delicious way to use your zucchini, even if it seems too GIANT to handle. =-)

First, gently wash the outside of your zuc.
Slice into as many 1/4- 1/2 inch slices as you need or want.
Rub liberally with extra virgin olive oil, then salt & pepper and roast in a 425 degree oven until softened/cooked through.
In a medium bowl mix ricotta cheese with fresh grated Parmesan. I use a 50-50 ratio. For 6 slices I use about 1/3 a cup each. Mix into your cheeses, pepper, parsley and oregano. Herbs may be fresh or dried.
Top the slices with the mixture, and place under a broiler until melted, bubbly, and browning slightly.

Here's Suzie's Boats, something else we enjoy here. =-)
