Roasted Zucchini with Feta ♥

Batons of zucchini, ready for the oven
Today's easy vegetable recipe: Zucchini and green onion roasted with feta cheese. Low carb. Weight Watchers 1 point.

~ recipe replaced 2008 ~

In 2005, Day 146's recipe for roasted zucchini had so much promise: it was simple and cheesy, then brightened with fresh mint. Instead, it was awful. In 2008, I made it again, just to see: not awful, but forgettable.

It was time for an overhaul, a fresh start, a new recipe. The zucchini and feta remain, garlic and onion are added, the mint is nixed. The results? Delicious!

1 tablespoon garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
1 ounce feta cheese

Sorry it didn't work out for you. Thanks for posting your findings. :)

How annoying it wasn't as good as it sounded! I saw the picture and thought me gots to try that! Then I read the post. Hm. Good thing you have so many other lovely things I can try!;-) Thanks for the warning!

When do you add the feta??

Thanks for the close read, Cori, the feta goes right in with the zucchini and onion. I've fixed the instructions too.

Yum! Great idea, I'm glad you've tweeked it and found one that works for you... have to give it a shot...
BTW: The intro says you added garlic & onions... and I don't see the garlic???

Thanks! Off to try it :D

Aii, will someone please send me the memo mentioning that just because you can't sleep at 4am doesn't mean you can write a complete recipe? So sorry, all, thanks for your patience.

Hey this was marvelous! I didn't have green onions so used up my vadalia onions instead. Added the garlic I knew should be there and stuffed it all in foil and cooked on the grill as per instructions from a previous email.

The zucchini was not "firm" but not soft and very sweet and delicious. The feta was the perfect topper.
