Zucchini Tomato Bake

Healthy Zucchini Tomato Casserole with garlic and Parmesan in 5 minutes of prep. Serve as low carb side dish or add cooked chicken for a 30 minute dinner.

Zucchini Tomato Casserole

We love Parmesan zucchini sticks and I have baked tomatoes topped with Parmesan cheese a number of times. So, I thought why not to combine both with some garlic and make a healthy zucchini tomato bake?!

Great success! This zucchini tomato casserole literally took me 5 minutes of chopping.

Cheese with garlic is always a winning combo. In Ukraine, garlic and dill go together like lime and cilantro in Mexico.

Tips for Best Zucchini Tomato Bake:

  • You can use green or yellow zucchini or a squash type.
  • Heirloom tomatoes would be delicious instead of grape tomatoes.
  • Throw in some cooked diced chicken, ground turkey or tofu to make low carb zucchini bake a complete meal.

How Long to Bake Zucchini?

I like zucchini cooked but still crunchy, and that’s what this zucchini tomato bake is. For well cooked vegetables, cook 10 minutes longer.

This zucchini squash tomato bake was amazing, even cold. I hope I don’t have to sell you on baked and somewhat crispy Parmesan cheese with garlic, right?! Enjoy my Ukrainian with an Italian flare version of zucchini!

How to Make Zucchini Squash Bake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 8 x 8 or 9 x 11 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients, except parsley/basil; stir to combine. sliced tomatoes and zucchini mixed with parmesan cheese and herbs in a bowl
  3. Transfer to a prepared baking dish and bake uncovered for 25 minutes for crunchy zucchini or 35 minutes if you like well cooked vegetables. I recommend checking for doneness with a fork or knife after 25 minutes. zucchini tomato bake
