Panko Crusted Zucchini Medallions

This are tasty little bites that could be served as a side dish or appetizer.

Several zucchini and/or yellow squash, cut into slices
Fresh basil
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup panko crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the zucchini and/or squash into even slices and arrange on baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Next, spoon a dollop of marinara sauce on each slice, place about a half a basil leaf on top, then about a teaspoon full of each type of cheese, and finally, sprinkle with panko crumbs.
Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the squash is cooked through and the panko is brown.
Serve while hot, and the cheese is still melty.  Enjoy!
