Turn those fresh summer vegetables into a delicious side dish the whole family with love. These Parmesan roasted zucchini and tomatoes are quick and easy to put together and they taste like a million bucks.

Roasted zucchini and cherry tomatoes are a great side dish for pasta, grilled meats, and more. It is a wonderful combination of flavors and there are so many ways to customize it and make it your own.

This recipe gives garden fresh vegetables a flavor kick with garlic, herbs and of course Parmesan cheese. These yummy roasted zucchini and cherry tomatoes are sure to be gobbled up at your dinner table.

Gardeners know there are a few of kinds of produce that can easily get away from you if you aren’t careful. Zucchini and cherry tomatoes happen to be two of those things.

Ingredients including zucchini, yellow squash, cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, parmesan cheese, oil, and seasonings ready to be made into baked zucchini and tomatoes with cheese.

Even if you only plant one or two of each plant, you can easily be overrun with the vegetables they produce. The next thing you know, you have a pile of zucchini and more cherry tomatoes than you can pick.

Luckily there are so many great recipes you can make from them. This is one of our favorite simple side dishes made from the plentiful summer bounty.

I love  the flavors and textures from the Italian sausage and zucchini sheet pan supper, so I thought I would do a twist on that to make it a side dish. Of course a nice big handful or two of Parmesan never hurt, so I tossed that on as well.

The veggies come out with a great texture and loads of flavor and the melted cheese really adds that extra something that makes them more fun than just a plate of veggies.  I could honestly sit down with a huge plate of this and call it dinner.

These veggies would also make a great side dish for cheese stuffed chicken Parmesan meatloaf. But we are also happy serving them with burgers, or whatever simple summer dinner we cook up.

You could even make them with scrambled eggs for a tasty breakfast or brunch. There really is no wrong way to serve them.

So next time your garden is burying you in zucchini and tomatoes, be sure to pull up this recipe. It is going to make you beg for more!

Tips and Tricks

Use the recipe as a guideline, but use whatever you happen to have on hand. It would be great with all zucchini or all yellow squash, it doesn’t have to be a mix of both.

You can also use grape tomatoes, or you could chop a larger tomato or two if that is what you have on hand.

Olive oil goes well with these flavors, but avocado oil or any other oil that can withstand the 400F temperature will work.

Feel free to play with the herbs as well. I always have dried herbs on hand, but some fresh herbs would be tasty.

To add a little zip, put a Tablespoon or two of balsamic or white wine vinegar in the mix.

This looks delicious! We didn't plant any squash plants at all this year, and I am missing them so much. We had some kind of squash "bug" going on, so hopefully next year the plants will be happier. Speaking of plants... your tomatoes!! They are HUGE!!

We had an squash bug infestation a few years back and that made us a little shy to plant more. Luckily we tend to get plenty gifted to us. We did dip our toes back in the water this year with cucumbers and so far so good.

Hi Carlee, your tomato plants are monsters!. I'm worried they are going to try to take over the world!... Our tomatoes and cucumbers are coming to an end now, they never seem to last past August, it's just too hot I think... At the moment corgettes are in a bundance in the supermarket and I still have cherry tomatoes on the plants. Anything covered inmelted cheese is a winner in this house.

They are definitely trying to take over the world! My husband trims them and the cucumber plants every week or two to keep them in their designated areas!
