Roasted Zucchini

Zucchini gets a bad reputation. I think it gets a bad rep because it isn't cooked well. Most people like to just boil their vegetables. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS BESIDES BOILING!!! Roasting is my favorite way to cook vegetables. It keeps the vegetables from getting soggy and keeps the flavor and nutrition in. This is one of my favorite recipes that can be used for most vegetables not just zucchini. While you are cooking your vegetables in the oven, you can stick these in the oven and they will be done by the time everything else is done cooking! It's quick, easy, and cheap!
