Notes

  • Cut the zucchini about 1/4 inch thick for this recipe. If you cut it thinner, it might get too crispy. Just reduce the cooking time accordingly in that case.
  • Swap out yellow squash for the zucchini or use a combination if desired for this easy baked zucchini recipe.
  • The great thing about this recipe is that you can easily scale it up for a bigger crowd - just grab a larger baking sheet, an extra zucchini and a few more spices!
  • If you're using up an extra large zucchini, but it in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds to discard. 
  • So head out to the garden, stop by your local farmers market OR grab a couple zucchinis at the grocery store and make this for a side tonight!
  • This zucchini side dish is great hot or served at room temperature.
