These are easy, yummy and you can bake them in the oven alongside your main dish. You will want one zucchini and one summer squash for every two people. Leftovers reheat very well in the microwave.

How to Make Roasted Stuffed Zucchini & Summer Squash

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each squash lengthwise.
  2. Place some oil in the bottom of a roasting pan. Add the squash cut side up.
  3. Season the squash.
  4. Roast open side facing up for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. While they are cooking, slice mushrooms.
  6. Pull them from the oven. Pierce squash with a fork. They should be roughly half-cooked before you start the next step.
  7. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  8. Fan mushroom slices lengthwise, overlapping some so they are covered from one end to the other. Generally, two mushrooms per squash seem to work.
  9. Top with pizza cheese. I use the blends but you can use straight mozzarella. I am conservative with the cheese because I am trying to watch my calories. (Non-fat cheese does not melt worth anything.)
  10. Return to oven and cook another 10-15 minutes. Cheese should be melted, slightly brown and squash should pierce easily.
  11. I eat one half of the zucchini and one half of summer squash in a sitting. I usually skip any other veggies when I cook these as they are quite filling.
  12. The roasting temp on this is flexible. You can go up or down 25 degrees to multitask with another dish for the same meal.
