Pan roasting the zucchini before adding the cheese really brings out its flavor. The key is to spray the pan liberally with oil (the Nutrition Facts assumes you will spray about a teaspoon).
Parmesan is most famous in the USA in the green shaker box. None of the recipes on this site use that type of cheese.
All of the recipes that use parmesan call for Parmigiano-Reggiano. This is a hard granular cheese that originates in Parma Italy. Those made in the area of Parma and Reggio Emilia are the real deal. Whenever possible I use the Italian cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano) rather than domestic or imports from South America. This costs more but the flavor difference is worth it.
Parmesans have about 9 grams of fat per ounce. This is moderate for cheese. Good parmesans have such a fine flavor you donít need much.
