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

  1. Absolutely delicious!! My husband recently had a heart attack, has diabetes and kidney disease so I’m trying to find easy, healthy meals that fit into those diet plans. I also work full time so need quick prep/short cooking time. This recipe checked off every one of these needs. Thank you SO much! I need to come up with legal menus so will continue to look forward to your recipes 😉

  2. I made this recipe twice already. Love it.. I added onions to the dish.. yummy As a Person on a plant base diet it on the money.

  3. Hi Olena~

    My name is Lynn and I am new to your website. I will be making “The Zucchini Bake with Tomatoes, Garlic and Parmesan” for family on Christmas Eve. It looks delicious and the reviews were outstanding! I do love that you take the time to respond to the reviewers questions and with a lengthy reply at that!

    I would like to know if I can prep this recipe 2 days ahead, store in the fridge uncooked and then cook it before I travel? Or must it be completely cooked first. I just prefer not reheating it if possible. Thank you Olena!

  4. I made the Zucchini Bake with Tomato, Garlic, and Parmesan as a side dish to take to a dinner party this evening. The cost to prepare was very reasonable, it was quick to prep, the clean up easy, and most importantly, everyone enjoyed it. I used 4 Zucchini, that was a total of 2.5 pounds, My husband rates all the recipes I try on a scale of 1 – 10, to be a keeper it must be at least 8.5, this recipe he gave a 9! Success! It’s very tasty, and healthy too! Thank you Olena, for the wonderful recipe.

  5. Made this today. I only put 1/4 cup of the parmesan in the mix, left the other 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top before baking. Also added a splash of extra virgin olive oil on top. Very good! This would be a great meatless Monday recipe with a nice crusty loaf of bread.

    Will definitely make again!

  6. Made it yesterday and my husband and I loved it. The zucchini was hot, but crunchy, just perfect. The tomatoes gave it flavor along with the cheese. Today I added a can of tuna and had the left over portion for lunch. This recipe is a keeper!

  7. I just wanted to say I have made this recipe a few times now and it’s great. I do increase the parmesan just a bit because I like it, and I add a slick of olive oil for flavor. We’ve eaten it a couple times as a main dish with some bread and a green salad on the side, and once I served it as a side with some tomato-basil chicken sausages. I love that it feels hearty but still light enough for a summer dish. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

  8. I did not know what to do with all this zucchini in my garden so i tried this recipe one night. It was delicious. I have one in the oven right now. I added chicken and bacon bits omg its gonna be good!

  9. I made it with and w/o the Parmesan, both were good, so I removed the Parmesan from the receipt and replaced it with Eggplant.
    How much (g) is a cup anyway?

  10. This is my 3rd year making this. I make it at least 4 times every summer. I do add mushrooms and sometimes a little red onion. My husband Can’t wait for me to make it. thanks for a great recipe.

    1. I’m so glad one of ifoodreal’s recipes became your family’s staple! And yes, husbands are really good at waiting for the wives to cook smth yummy.:)

  11. I came across this recipe because I had a bunch of zucchini to use up and was thrilled to find I already had all of the ingredients for this. Super easy, light and healthy! Definitely a keeper and will make again. I used a tsp. of Bragg’s organic Sprinkle for the seasoning. Thanks for the great recipe!

  12. I’ve had this on one of my Pinterest boards forever, and I stumbled back upon it while I was looking for something to make with all the zucchini in our weekly farm box. I also made the rosemary chicken that you mentioned in the same post. The veggies are not quite done yet. but everything smells amazing! I can’t wait until it’s all finished! I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your cooking ideas/ recipes.

  13. Made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious! I did add a little bit of extra cheese but I add extra cheese to everything 🙂 I chopped the veggies over the weekend and it only took five minutes tonight to throw everything else together. Easy, quick and delicious!!

    1. Chopping in advance – I should learn from you. I suck at prep. Probably because I cook so much, and then clean after, I can’t loath an idea of prepping for a week on Sunday lol.
