2 large zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
Olive oil, for brushing zucchini
Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
Fresh basil, chopped, optional*
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Brush both sides of zucchini rounds with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 10 minutes on large baking sheet. Remove from oven and top with small amounts of sauce and cheese. Roast for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted, taking care not to burn. Sprinkle with freshly chopped basil, if desired
