Roasted Zucchini with Almonds and Parmesan

roasted zucchini recipe

I think zucchini is the forgotten vegetable. In the late summer, zucchini is at it’s peak and everyone is scurrying around to find different ways to use it up. But then fall and winter shows up no one ever talks about it anymore. Well, I’m here to bring zucchini back!

This side dish is delicious! I made it so many times over the summer and each time I think it only got better. Eden has told me that it’s one of her favorite sides I make. Its an easy dish to make and pretty cheap. The next time you aren’t sure what to make on the side for dinner, try this out! You will gobble it up just like we do!
