Such a simple side dish can elevate a meal to an entirely different level. In the South, we tend to fry our vegetables, fried okra, fried squash, fried potatoes......but tonight, with three lovely zucchini in the fridge, they cried out for roasting in a hot oven. Roasted vegetables brings out their natural sweetness and gives such a rich sweet taste.
3 medium zucchini, ends trimmed and cut into fourths and then sliced into 1/2 inch slices
a few shakes of salt
a few grinds of black pepper
2 T. olive oil
1 T. Tones Tuscan Garlic seasoning (or 1 T. dried Italian seasoning)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until zucchini is well coated. Spread onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
Roast zucchini for 18 - 20 minutes, until browned, stirring about half way through. Serve immediately.
