I love making zucchini and when you add a bunch of cheese it doesn’t get much better than this! The only thing I would change is maybe quarter the zucchini so it’s smaller bites. I know leaving it in a coin shape will make for better presentation, but I like getting a bite of everything without having to cut it all up. We also added a little cajun seasoning on top, it felt like it needed just a little something.
