Zucchini Pizza Bites

These are really easy (almost not worth giving a recipe!) and extremely delicious. I imagine that if you have kids who hate vegetables this might be one of those sneaky ways to get them to eat it (although I'm not exactly a proponent for being "sneaky" about healthy foods). It's also a good low-calorie snack and very tasty.

Try it out!

Zucchini Pizza Bites

1 medium zucchini, sliced into rounds
2-3 Tbsp favorite pasta sauce (or tomato paste with Italian seasoning)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella/Parmesan cheese
Cooking spray

Heat oven to 450 degrees, or turn on your broiler (I cannot figure out the broiler on the oven in my apartment - embarrassing, I know). Line a baking sheet with cooking spray and place zucchini rounds on sheet. Cover the tops with cooking spray. Bake/broil the zucchini for about 6-7 minutes until slightly tender.

Remove from oven, top with a small amount of pasta sauce and cheese, then continue cooking for 3-5 minutes until the cheese is bubbling (if you're using the broiler watch it carefully so it doesn't burn on top).
