Italian Veggie “Casserole”

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 pound zucchini chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 10 ounces spinach
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese optional


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Lightly coat a 9- x 13-inch baking pan with olive oil (you don't need much!). In a large bowl, combine first 12 ingredients (zucchini through red onion); toss to combine then spread in prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until zucchini is fork-tender and remaining veggies are nicely roasted and slightly browned; return to the large bowl.
  • In a large, deep skillet, heat the lemon juice and water over medium-high heat. Add the spinach; cook and stir until wilted (1 to 2 minutes); drain well then add to the roasted vegetables and toss to combine.
