Zucchini, Squash, and Potato Summer Side

This summer side dish is super simple. It’s perfect along side grilled chicken, steak, or any seafood dish. Heck it can also stand alone as a main meal for you veggie peeps out there. Any kind of zucchini/squash combo just screams summer to me. My zucchini and squash came from my produce guy who sells gorgeous locally-grown fruits & veggies literally less than a block from my house. Buying locally just makes my heart happy. And I think you should do it too! Just sayin…Not kidding when I say this recipe is simple. If you blink, you might miss it. Focus!

// Zucchini, Squash, and Potato Summer Side //
serves 4 as a side-dish

  • 1 large zucchini, sliced thin
  • 1 large yellow squash, sliced thin
  • 1 large russet potato, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp EVOO {extra virgin olive oil}
  • 2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning {or any seafood seasoning you prefer}
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • bread crumbs
  • crumbled parmesan cheese

preheat oven to 375 degrees. combine potato slices, zucchini slices, and squash slices with EVOO, Old Bay, and salt & pepper in a medium mixing bowl. grease a casserole dish with olive oil cooking spray and layer the slices by one potato slice, one squash, and one zucchini slice. repeat this until you’ve filled the casserole dish with rows of layers. sprinkle top with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. bake for 15-20 minutes or until the layers are gold and crispy!

This dish is so easy and yummy! By cutting the vegetables thin, they become incredibly tender when they cook. Which makes them even more delicious in my opinion. My style of cooking is pretty light and low in fat. In the summer, simple sides like these make the ‘light lifestyle’ that much easier. Keep it simple, stupid. You’ll be amazed at how quickly these will disappear.
