Roasted zucchini and more is a wonderful, quick meal.

Roasted Zucchini and More

This recipe for roasted zucchini and more is one of our favorite ways to use up zucchini in the summer.  I even make this recipe during the winter if I can find any zucchini in the grocery store.  It is so versatile in that you can add whatever vegetables you like and increase or decrease the spices to suit yourself.  It is a wonderful easy weeknight meal to serve your family and you can use turkey sausage to make this recipe healthy if you like.  This makes a complete meal for us and I often increase the amount of vegetables so we will have plenty of leftovers for another time.  This goes great with our recipe for sweet cornbread mini muffins.

Roasted zucchini made in the oven is a good way to use this vegetable.

1 large zucchini, cut in chunks

3 to 4 medium sized red potatoes, cut in chunks (I don’t peel mine)

2 large carrots, scraped and cut in pieces

1 pound smoked sausage, cut in pieces

1 onion, quartered (optional)

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter, melted (optional)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

Put the potatoes and carrots in a microwave bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes.  Whisk together the olive oil, melted butter, garlic powder, basil, black pepper and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Add microwaved potatoes, carrots, zucchini, onion and smoked sausage to olive oil mixture and toss.  Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Spray with cooking spray and spread all vegetables on baking sheet.  Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!
