When zucchini is cut into ¼-inch slices, it is baked until tender for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When prepared in the oven, zucchini is often covered with breadcrumbs, spices and Parmesan cheese.
When sliced into small pieces, zucchini is often cut at an angle. It makes an attractive arrangement in a square baking dish or a round pie plate when the slices are overlapped or placed in a spiral design. Topped with salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, breadcrumbs, cheese and olive oil, it is a quick and tasty side dish. Zucchini also works in full-length slices with the same preparations and bake times.
