Roasted Zucchini and Yellow Squash 

Growing up zucchini was the most abundant vegetable that grew. We mainly made zucchini bread and cooked it some how. However, I recently rediscovered these vegetables in my healthier eating and this was my happy medium to cooking something tasty and healthy. This is definitely a great way to use your zucchini  and  yellow squash harvest. 

Also the ladies at work smelled my lunch and asked me for the recipe and it’s so simple. 

So without further delay ….

Tools Needed
Knife

Cutting board 

Large cookie sheet or pan 

Oven at 400 degrees

Ingredients 

2 zucchinis sliced into strips

2 yellow squashes sliced into strips

1/4 cup  Parmesan cheese grated or 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh Parmesan shredded ( can add more to taste)

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion

Few dashes of salt and pepper 

A pinch of Italian seasoning 

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 
Directions 

1.Cut zucchini and squash into strips, place in cookie sheet and sprinkle the olive oil all over.


2. Sprinkle all the spices ( garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper)and Parmesan on the zucchini and squash and mix by hand until evenly distributed. 


3. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.


Eat these alone or package for work the next day ! Reheats well. Using the shredded Parmesan will give it more chrunch. I strongly recommend this as side dish that can go with any meat.
Enjoy !
