Roasted Zucchini & Pesto

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

Serves 4

Prep Time 5 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

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

Cooking Directions

Step 1

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

Step 2

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.
