Zucchini and Yellow Squash and Onions, OH MY!

recipe adapted from:

Yeah, okay follow the trend setting here. I am trying to eat a little better. Yes indeed. I bake so much that if my family can eat a little better during the day then I wont feel guilty about have cake and other baked goods around for them devour.

I also now enjoy Spinning and Zumba. But that's another blog.

Carrying on… Publix had a sale on Zucchini and Yellow Squash and I couldn’t resist. I wanted to do something different other then the normal marinate in Italian dressing and grill them on the George. I searched in the oh so famous and found this.


“Grilled Lemon Pepper Zucchini”, but I didn’t grill it I baked it. and I didn’t have red bell peppers so I used some salsa… that sold me… the salsa was the kicker.



2 small yellow squash, sliced

2 small zucchini sliced, sliced

1 small onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, minced ( I used salsa)

1 1/2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil ( I didn’t measure any of my seasonings. Bad habit I have)

1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning


Preheat Grill (or oven to 350 degrees)

Combine all ingredients and wrap in aluminum foil and seal into a packet.

Place packet on grill and cook 30 minutes turning every 5 to 10 mins. Or bake in oven for 40 mins.

Take out and enjoy. I warn you when you sample a zucchini you may not want to stop eating them.
