Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Zucchini, Squash and Tomatoes

07.20.2015

Oh summer, how I love you and all the fresh fruit and veggies you provide. During the summer I always have a generous stock of fruits and vegetables in my fridge then winter rolls around and that’s a different story. It’s like that abundance of nutritious, vitamin packed fruits and veggies gets traded in for an abundance of cavity causing, non-diet-friendly holiday sweets, but I won’t complain there. I love my sweets. But I also love a sheet pan full of roasted, cheesy summer veggies! I love what a good roasting and a fair amount of Parmesan can do for veggies. Turns drab and dull into fab and flavorful! Even my kids loved these veggies – including my one daughter who always says “hey could you get that green stuff off of there?”

Since I usually get recipes posted on here made by midday (so I can catch a decent light for pictures), they often become lunch for me. So today I had a big bowl full of these garlicky veggies paired with a side of Energy Bites. Totally random but a little salty and little sweet is always good together. My girls had theirs for a snack along with a glass of chocolate milk, again some salty and some sweet, it makes the world go round. Okay it just makes my world go round :). Try these veggies (+1 fruit if you want to get all technical – I still have a hard time accepting tomatoes as a fruit. Call it stubbornness I guess but they just don’t seem fruity enough to be labeled as such), this simple side dish will not disappoint!

    • Ell: I made this recipe w/some adjustments: I had some left over chicken, & I used a popular vinear & oil salad dressing (added some extra olive oil), added some garlic powder (just ‘cuz we like lots of garlic). I also used a mixture of cheese. I had to cook it longer due to dbling the recipe but it was GREAT! Took the little bit I had left & made pita pockets for me & hubby the next night. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!!! May 11, 2018 at 1:15pm Reply
