3 medium or 6 small zucchini (about 1 pound before trimming)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Salt and pepper
Cut each medium zucchini in half lengthwise and then again crosswise and place on a baking sheet. If using small zucchini, just cut them once lengthwise. Brush the cut sides with butter; season lightly with salt and pepper. Broil 5-6 inches from the heat for 10-12 minutes until tender.

I found this in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. I think it tastes very good but I overcooked mine by accident. I was busy with some pork chops and left the zucchini under the broiler a little too long. I suggest watching it more closely than I did. Also, go easy on the salt. Because the zucchini shrinks as it cooks, the salt will become more concentrated. Click the photo to see a closeup.
