Roasted Marinated Zucchini

It's Zucchini Time! Here's a simple, easy recipe for all that zucchini that seems to be piling up in the fridge.

1 Large Zucchini
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
Fresh ground pepper

Slice the zucchini into long narrow strips.

Combine the remaining ingredients into a jar with top and shake until the olive oil is emulsified. Pour the dressing over the zucchini, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
Lay the zucchini over a baking sheet. Place on the top rack of the oven and roast 7 minutes or until edges start to brown.


The roasted strips can be eaten straight OR a great sandwich or wrap filling.
