Roasted Cheesy Zucchini

Salty, crispy, cheesy, garlic-y zucchini that will convince EVERYBODY, even the pickiest eaters, that vegetables are indeed delicious (when made properly of course).

*My vegan friends – use your favorite vegan cheese for this recipe, preferably one that melts well and crisps up in the oven.

*My non-vegan friends – use Monterey Jack! If you want to go the next level up, use pepper jack 🙂
