Parmesan Lemon and Garlic Roasted Zucchini Wedges

These delicious zucchini with lemon, garlic, and parmesan cheese are so good, they are cooked to perfection, then with the combination of the lemon, garlic and parmesan is an amazing mixture, you can eat them like candy, believe me, they are that good. I love zucchini, but sometimes you can only do so much with them. But this is now my favorite way to eat them, this recipe is so simple to make and you will love it.

These are what I made for my daughters birthday party and they were a huge hit, no leftovers here. They are perfect for anytime of the year as a side dish.


  • 5-6 medium zucchini ( about 1- 1/2- 2 pounds)
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1 small lemon ( about 1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed through a garlic mincer or finely minced
  • 1 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Directions:

  • 1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then line 2 cookie sheets with aluminum foil and set aside
  • 2. Cut zucchini into thick wedges. That meaning, cut each zucchini in half then that half in half, so you have 4 wedges from each zucchini. 
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and garlic. Place zucchini on prepared baking sheet spacing them evenly apart. Brush olive oil, lemon zest and garlic mixture over tops of zucchini to make sure each piece has some evenly.
  •  4. Then sprinkle tops with parmesan cheese and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • 5.  Bake for 13-14 minutes until slightly browned, then place the broiler on for 1-2 minutes, keeping an eye on it so it does not burn, you just want parmesan cheese to get slightly brown.
