Before we get into the details, I want to share how this recipe came about…

My aunt, who’s one of those home cooks who can make a meal out of anything in her fridge and pantry, and feed 10 unexpected guests a delicious dinner, sent me a text that said  “Quick dinner idea… ” and all the details.

Her no-nonsense cooking style has been the inspiration and source of many recipes on this website (Black Bean Veggie Salsa is one comes to mind)!  They always call for minimal ingredients, minimal fuss and taste amazing!

I made it the day after she sent her text without the pepper (because I didn’t have any in the house) and we all loved it!

The vegetables were tender and just crisp, the flavor was amazing and it gets nice and juicy at the bottom of the pan from the vegetables, olive oil and seasoning, perfect for dipping with some gluten-free bread!

I made it next with the peppers, shown here and love the additional pop of color but the pepper definitely add flavor, so if you’re not a roasted pepper fan, skip.

Either way, it is a perfect side dish all year round and I see lots of room to switch up the vegetables and it will always taste a little different!

As with all our recipes, there is a printable recipe with exact measurements at the bottom of this page.

garlic powder

kosher salt

parmesan cheese

extra virgin olive oil

I leave the recipe intentionally as “one large zucchini” vs 2 cups zucchini because the intent of the recipe is to be something simple that you can grab ingredients out your refrigerator and just use them, and not be stressed about the exact measurement.  It’s the type of recipe that is forgiving and will work well with more or less of your favorite vegetable.

If you’re the type that likes exact measurements, don’t worry — I have exact measurements for the all the other ingredients!

Then all you do is toss everything together in a large bowl.

And pour into a cast iron pan or baking dish or choice and bake!

You could mix everything directly in your baking dish if you want one less bowl to clean.

After 30 minutes, the vegetables will be tender, the top slightly crisp and it’s ready to serve!

Top with a little extra parsley if serving to guests to make it feel fresher and more special, and enjoy!

A perfect simple side dish! Easy, nourishing and delicious!

Or add a couple whisked eggs directly to the pan before baking and make more like a frittata! It’s one of those recipes that has lots of versatility.

Hope you love it as much as we do!
