If you’re looking for a low point side dish you need to try these cheesy zucchini rounds!
Not only are they low in points but they’re easy to make.
You can have two for 1 point. That’s with blue, green and purple.
And they’re topped with cheese! Cheese makes everything better. 🙂
Zucchini is a fruit but it’s usually treated like a vegetable. There is so much you can do with it!
It’s zero points which makes it a great option with Weight Watchers.
Instead of using noodles you can use zucchini and make “zoodles”. That’s a huge point saver!
You can also use it in lasagna instead of lasagna noodles.
For this recipe I simply mixed together reduced fat cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder.
I sliced the zucchini and topped each slice with salt and pepper, then added some of the cheese mixture to the top.
I baked them for 10 minutes, when the cheese was nice and melted.
These cheesy zucchini rounds are a great side if you want to indulge in a steak or something a little higher in points.
Yield: 24 (2 cheesy zucchini rounds is 2 points with blue, green and purple)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Add the zucchini slices and season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Stir until combined.
Top each zucchini slice with about 3/4 teaspoon of the cheese mixture. Bake for 10 minutes.
