Roasted Summer Squash

This vegetable dish is so simple to make, yet so delicious as a side dish for an easy summer dinner. The yellow summer squash is drizzled with olive oil and tossed in some simple seasonings and roasted in a hot oven creating the perfect roasted flavor.

  • Summer squash and zucchini need to be harvested when they are small, about 6 inches, and the skin is still soft not tough, and the seeds are small. This results in a tender vegetable with a better flavor.

  • Zucchini can be substituted in this recipe, it is very similar in taste and texture.

Ingredients

6 cups chopped summer squash or zucchini, about 3 small

2 tablespoons olive oil (or oil of choice)

2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Chop the summer squash into bite sized pieces. Remove large seeds if necessary. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl. Place on a large baking sheet making sure not to crowd the squash not too close together.

3. Once the oven has preheated, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and slightly browned.

Spoon the squash into a serving bowl, you can squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice on top and sprinkle with some fresh herbs. Serve immediately and enjoy!
