Roasted Summer Squash
Choosing quick-roasting vegetables like zucchini and summer squash is obvious when you need a fast side dish for dinner. Olive oil, salt, and pepper are the only seasonings you'll need and this recipe will be on the table in just 20 minutes.
Tip: Use a baking sheet without sides. This allows better air circulation around the squash and promotes more even roasting and browning.
