  • 2 zucchinis, quartered lengthwise
  • 2 yellow squash, quartered lengthwise
  • cup parmesan, grated
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt (or sea salt)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and then lay an oven-safe cooling rack over the parchment paper. Rub the cooling rack with ½ the olive oil to coat and then set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the parmesan, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper.
  4. Place the sliced zucchini and squash in a medium mixing bowl and drizzle the remaining ½ tbsp. olive oil over. Toss to coat evenly.

  6. Place the zucchini and squash spears onto the prepared cooling rack on the baking sheet.

  7. Sprinkle any remaining parmesan-spice mixture from the bowl over the squash and zucchini.
