Day 344 – Parmesan Garlic Zucchini

My mom had a zucchini in the fridge tonight when I was visiting for dinner, so I took that as an opportunity for the day’s  Pinterest project.

Here is the recipe I followed:

Clean Eating Roasted Summer Squash

(Makes approximately 6 servings)


  • 4 large zucchini
  • 2 large yellow squash
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • Olive oil – In an oil sprayer
  • 1/8 cup parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Chop your squash into large, chunky slices about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness.
  3. Spray a cookie sheet with a light coat of olive oil.
  4. Line up your squash slices like little soldiers. Don’t worry about leaving any space between them. They’ll cook just fine scrunched together.
  5. Spray a very light coat of olive oil over the top of the squash.
  6. Sprinkle your spices, including the Parmesan over the squash.
  7. Bake for approximately 30-45 minutes, or until they have a very light golden hue to them, and you can easily push a fork through them.
  8. Allow to cool slightly and serve.

This zucchini recipe was tasty. I really liked how the  cheese and garlic was baked right on. The one thing I did not like was how squishy the zucchini was. It was really watery and drippy. Perhaps it cooked too long….maybe not long enough. I feel like we have already established that I am not really too familiar with zucchini cooking.
