Impatient for a taste of one of my favorite vegetables, technically a fruit, I stopped at a market and purchased my first local zucchini of the season to make one of my favorite dishes, "Roasted Zucchini With Veggies and Cheese.
ROASTED ZUCCHINI WITH VEGGIES AND CHEESE
Slice 3 small zucchini lengthwise into three slices.
Add olive oil to baking pan to coat.
Place zucchini slices in pan then turn over to coat both sides with oil.
Arrange slices close together in pan.
Spoon your favorite pasta sauce over zucchini.
Throw on a handful of this
a handful of that.
(I added chopped tomatoes, mushrooms, green onion, and parsley)
Sprinkle with your favorite spices.
(I used basil, thyme, oregano, and rosemary)
Top with grated cheese.
(I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
Bake at 400 degrees for about 1/2 hour.
Eat it while it's piping hot!
So easy, so simple, and if I do say so myself...
so perfectly perfect!
