new combinations.

Okay, before I get started, I should say – I have been slacking on the picture-taking lately. I have been frustrated with the quality of the images taken by my camera because I spend my days looking at beautiful images produced by lovely ladies like Katelyn and Lauryn and the delicious snapshots shared by the likes of Nicole and Deb, and I can’t bring myself to post the crazy pictures that I take in our dark apartment at all hours of the evening. So anyway – I’m sorry for not having pictures! When I have more natural light, I’ll post more pictures. That makes it at least a little easier. :)

I had a great weekend – drinks with two dear ladies on Friday night, a 5k with my momma and brother hosted by our church on Saturday, and a Sunday filled with learning and relaxation. But the side dish I made on Sunday night is the real reason for this post – I wanted to share a quick and easily adaptable recipe for a healthy and tasty veggie.

We all know about my love for zucchini – I would eat it every day if I could! But, I almost always cook it the same way – Japanese style, with soy sauce and onions and sesame seeds. Delicious, absolutely. But I was ready to try something new.

So, armed with what I had in the cabinet/refrigerator and a bag of zucchini – here’s what I did.

Yummy Baked Zucchini Recipe

1. Cut the ends off of zucchini. Cut in half lengthwise. Lay in a baking dish (or on a baking sheet).

2. Drizzle olive oil over zucchini halves.

3. Sprinkle the following (add and subtract as you desire!) over oiled zucchini:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • lemon pepper
  • garlic powder
  • parsley

4. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over seasoned zucchini.

5. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and zucchini is still firm but cooked through. (I cooked mine a little too long – we forgot they were in the oven! So, I don’t have an exact time. Oopsies!)

6. Enjoy!

    Mmmm!! That sounds soo good; I love zukes, too but I always make them the same way. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Nikki, this sounds like a great recipe, and easy too! I think I will try this one this weekend! Methinks the Significant Other, being the veggie lover that he is, will definitely approve!
