Grilled Zucchini with Cheese

 Two of my favorite foods together; zucchini and cheese - yum!  Right now I have zucchini I'm trying to find my top two favorite recipes to use for.  I didn't put a garden in this summer and I'm MISSING MY ZUCCHINI!  People always make jokes about having too much with no one to give it away to - but I've not found anyone offering it this summer!   I really hate to pay the high prices in our local grocery store for them...  so I'm treating this little gem like gold.

Grilled Zucchini with Cheese

2 t butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced
4 zucchini, halved lengthwise
1/2 c shredded Monterey Jack

While the grill preheats, melt the butter in a skillet over  medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes, but don't brown it or burn it or it will be bitter.  Add the zucchini halves in the mixture and coat well by stirring and flipping. Lay the halves flat side down on the grill.

Grill halves for about 5 minutes. Flip over, and add cheese equally across the length of zucchini.  Grill until tender and cheese is melted.
