Roasted Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Roasted Zucchini and Yellow Squash

img_4603I love zucchini and squash, but I always find it hard to find time to sauté or fry them like I typically would with two kids running amuck at dinner time.  I came across this recipe from The Toasty Kitchen.  It uses ingredients I always have, it’s easy to throw onto a pan, and bakes quickly.  It has a lot of flavor with little cleanup.


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 small zucchini
  • 2 small yellow squash
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Slice zucchini and yellow squash into 1/2″ disks.  Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Add zucchini and yellow squash discs and toss to coat.
  4. Pour zucchini and squash onto the parchment lined baking sheet and spread into a single layer.  Sprinkle tops of zucchini and squash with parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cooked through.
