I haven’t said my good-byes to summer squash yet.  I go to the farmer’s market weekly, and as long as the farmers keep selling it, I’ll keep buying it.  🙂

Zucchini is a favorite around here, and while I love baking with it, it’s amazing roasted with my favorite baby bella mushrooms. 

The biggest bonus is that the rest of my family love this roasted zucchini and mushrooms as much as I do!  You may catch one or two family members eating this right off the sheet pan.

Who am I kidding?  I’m the one that does that. 🙂

Roasted Zucchini and Mushrooms

I love preparing roasted vegetables.  It doesn’t matter what the vegetable is — they always taste better roasted because they become so tender and caramelized. 

Zucchini can be really bland, but roasting takes it over the top!

I paired the zucchini with cremini mushrooms and thyme, which turned out to be some of the best roasted vegetable side dishes ever.

When the mushrooms are roasted, they add a delicious earthy, meaty flavor that’s irresistible.  The thyme also adds a bit of earthiness, along with herbal notes as well.
