The zucchini just isn’t stopping at our house.  Once it starts it just doesn’t stop.  But thats ok.  Zucchini is my favorite summer vegetable.  And there are so many yummy ways to use up that zucchini.   But these zucchini spears became my new favorite.

I love how quick and easy these are to throw in to the oven.  It takes just a matter of minutes to throw together.  And how can you not love the parmesan and garlic flavor combination??  It goes so well on roasted vegetables in my opinion.

The oven roasted these to perfection.  With a slight crisp edge on the outside and a tender and soft inside.  And the parmesan garlic coating on the outside is so delicious!  But how can you not love the parmesan and garlic flavor combination?  They were meant for each other.  🙂

This is such a great way to use up that zucchini crop.  They make a great side or even a snack and will become an instant favorite!

  4. I made this with yellow squash. It was good, but my husband asked me to add more seasoning next time. I thought it was great. He smokes, so…
