Zucchini cooks up quickly on the grill, and when topped with a little parmesan cheese, it’s pretty irresistible. If you can find smaller zucchini that are about 1-inch wide, you can just cut them in half lengthwise. Larger zucchini will need to be cut lengthwise into about ⅓-to ½-inch slices. Prepping them on a large baking sheet makes it really easy to transport out to the grill. If you’d like, you can top the grilled vegetables when they come off the grill with some chopped fresh herbs, such as basil, tarragon, or parsley.
