Roasted Zucchini & Pesto

Serves: 4

Roasted and tossed with your favorite pesto, zucchini turns into an almost-instant summer side dish.

Yield: 1 cup each
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 min


2 pounds zucchini, (about 4 medium), trimmed and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons pesto, prepared
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper to taste


Place a baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 500°F.

Toss zucchini with oil in a large bowl. Spread the zucchini on the preheated baking sheet in a single layer. Roast until beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn the zucchini and continue roasting until just tender, 7 to 9 minutes more. Return the zucchini to the bowl. Add pesto, salt and pepper; toss to coat.
