Zucchini Parmesan Foil Packets

Minimum effort, zero clean-up and easy serving! These can also be grilled or baked so you can have it anytime, anywhere!

Is it me or are you guys just as obsessed with foil packets as me?

Obsessed may be an understatement actually. It’s my life.

Because basically everything is getting shoved into a foil packet and baked (or grilled) right now – it just depends on my mood.

And with this asian salmon in foil and these parmesan zucchini foil packets, I’ve had this same dinner nonstop for weeks.

No, wait. Sometimes these zucchini packets are my only dinner. That’s all you really need – veggies and Parmesan cheese.

Oh, and I haven’t done dishes in two weeks with these foil dinners so there’s that.

I LOVE ZUCCHINI and this just looks so delicious. What oven temperature would you bake these at? Thanks for all your great recipes!

These can be baked at 425 degrees F for 15-18 minutes.

What temperature and how long if you decided to bake them? (I’m a novice, can you tell?) 🙂

Yum! What temp would you use to bake these?

These can be baked at 425 degrees F for 15-18 minutes.

Oh my, these look super delicious and SUPER easy to make! Could you make these in the oven though, and if so what temp do you recommend?

These can be baked at 425 degrees F for 15-18 minutes.

Thank you so much, definitley gonna try this Friday!!

What are the parameters for using an oven?

These can be baked at 425 degrees F for 15-18 minutes.

What temp oven and how long should you bake them if you do it in the oven? Sounds great – I think I’ll pair this with one of your great chicken thigh recipes.

Who knew zucchini could look so delicious?! We’re going to have to make this asap with all the zucchini coming out of our garden right now!

Did the color on top come from the grill or did you put it under the broiler after?

I popped it under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes to get that beautiful golden brown crust.

Hi Chungah! I absolutely LOVE your website. I’ve tried quite a few of your recipes and they are ‘damn delicious’.
Do you think you’ll ever list the nutritional breakdown for your recipes(calorie, protein, fat, etc.)?
Thanks so much!

The nutritional information has just been added right below the recipe. 🙂

Just bought some zucchini yesterday, thanks to you, I know how they will be prepared today with dinner. You ROCK! Thanks for help making dinner a little easier.

These look so good but what’s the red coloring from ?

Crushed red pepper flakes! 🙂

Have you added some chilli flakes? These look delicious.

yak, these look very spicy 🙂

It’s not spicy at all! The red pepper flakes are simply added as a garnish – it is a completely optional ingredient.

yummy, nice one, i will try it today.

I made this twice over the weekend and it was great! We may make this again on our camping trip in two weeks – can’t live on s’mores alone 😉 Thanks for sharing!

The amount of recipes I have bookmarked from you is ridiculous lol! Looking forward to trying this recipe next!

I will have to give these another go as they did not turn out. For me, on the grill at 13 minutes was way too long. They were way over cooked and not edible. Also, you should mention in the recipe you popped them in the over on broil for a few minutes as without that step they will not look like your pictures (and that crispy/burnt cheese on top is what makes the pics!).

This looks so easy to make! And I love how there’s no clean-up needed afterwards, there’s absolutely no excuse not to try this. Thank you for posting it. I love all your recipes!

I’m a newbie, and your recipes look yum! Don’t know how you find the time!

Any thoughts on doing this in a oven safe casserole dish in the oven? I am thinking of serving this for Christmas day, Could I prepare part of this ahead of time?

Can I add squash?

Your recipe looks really good! I am a new cook and found a recipe for yellow squash with onions, tomatoes, spices, and butter cooked in the oven in foil. When I opened up my foil packet I realized that the veggies were not roasted at all, but were merely steamed in their own juices (with no water) in the oven. Since then I have made this recipe several times, but instead of cooking in foil in the oven, I cook it in my microwave same ingredients as the foil packets without water in a pressure cooker (plastic for the microwave). It cooks in half the time (or less) and a lot less fuss than making foil packets. This is so much easier for me as I have a very small kitchen with very limited prep space.

I am looking forward to trying your recipes. They look yummy.

You made it look really easy for me as I wanted to try this recipe but was 100% sure what would be the outcome. But your recipe made it look easier and I was able to make super delicious zucchini. Thanks for the article.
