Easy Oven Roasted Zucchini Spears

Easy to customize Roasted Zucchini Spears.


Whenever the hubby is out of town, quick & easy is the name of the game when it comes to fixing dinners for myself. Since I had a huge bunch of zucchini sitting on the counter and no one but my little self to feed, that’s pretty much what I had three out of four nights last week.


After perusing recipes for about ten minutes, my stomach’s growling definitely put in a vote for something without a lot of prep work. I couldn’t find anything that seemed to satisfy the bill so I ended up throwing this together out of desperation.


Not really knowing the end from the beginning, I just sliced up the zucchinis and started sprinkling on whatever tickled my fancy from the cupboard. They ended up turning out really delicious and I ended up using what I thought would be a “side” for my main dish. The spears came out slightly crispy on the outside but still soft inside which was great since I wasn’t really going for a “french fry” effect. The seasoning is simple but complimented the squash well. Well enough that I decided it was a recipe worth adding to my cookbook and sharing with the hubby when he gets back in town.

Simple. Quick. Delicious.

Yep, that’s a recipe that belongs in my house.
