got this off epicurious last night-- we both loved it, it's fast, easy, fresh and doesn't heat up the kitchen!
ZUCCHINI with JALAPENO MONTEREY JACK
1 medium zucchini, scrubbed and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/2 C coarsely grated jalapeno monterey jack
1 tsp flour
s & p
spread the zucchini in a microwave safe dish. toss the cheese and flour together in a small bowl. scatter evenly over the zucchini. Microwave uncovered, on High, for 3-4 minutes, until zucchini is tender and cheese is melted. Season zucchini with salt and pepper.
**I used cheddar, as that's what i had, but of course pepperjack could only taste better with zucchini. i didn't spread in a single layer, so the bottom was cooked perfectly but had no cheese. You might want to make sure of having only a single, slightly overlapping layer for this reason. the flour disappears but clearly helps keep the moisture down-- there was no pile of juices here, it was just cooked veg topped with a good amount of cheese. salting probably comes afterward for the same reason, so avoid temptation to pre-season. A good, astoundingly simple recipe.
