For more tender zucchini, leave slices in the pan an extra 1 minute on each side. When the flesh starts to look translucent, the zucchini is done.

Sometimes the most simple dishes are the best dishes! Just sprinkled a little Parmesan after pan grilling.

Yes the Parm is good.  Sprinkled it on while the zucchini was still in the pan then covered for a few min so the cheese would melt.

these were good and easy.   added some marjoram while grilling.   took advice and grilled a little longer, since i don't like mine crunchy…then they were sorta mushy, but still tasty!  will try them again.  

Add a little cheese

Two minutes per side was not enough, I had to grill mine at least 5. They were good and the grill marks make them looks sophisticated!
