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.
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
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning
Instructions
  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!
Notes
If you do not have any Mrs. Dash seasoning, you can use a mix of garlic salt, paprika, and dried Italian seasoning or dried parsley.
