1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves Garlic (minced or crushed)
1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning

HOW TO MAKE BAKED EASY CHEESY ZUCCHINI CASSEROLE

Step 1: Start by tossing the zucchini slices with sea salt. Set over the sink in a colander to drain for about 45 minutes. Then, pat dry and set aside.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 204 degrees C.

Step 3: Arrange the zucchini slices in a small 1.5 quart (1.5L) casserole dish in a few overlapping rows. In between rows, very lightly sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese and lightly season with black pepper.

Step 4: In a small saucepan, combine the brie, cream, milk, butter, and garlic. Heat over low to medium-low heat for several minutes, frequently stirring until the cheese melts and the mixture is smooth. Season with salt to taste if desired. Evenly pout this over the zucchini.

Step 5: Sprinkle over the rest of the 3/4 cup shredded cheese blend and top with Italian seasoning.

Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the cheese is dark golden brown and the zucchini is soft.
