  • Total Time: 45


Roasted zucchini and onions topped with marinara and melty mozzarella!


  • 3 cups sliced zucchini (slice it into half moons!)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tbs italian seasoning (I prefer Penzey’s!)
  • 1.5 cups marinara sauce (I prefer Prego)
  • 12 ounces mozzarella cheese (I do 8 ounces of pre shredded mozzarella + 4 ounces smoked fresh mozzarella)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add your sliced zucchini and chopped onions to a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning.
  3. Dump zucchini and onions onto a half sheet pan, and roast for 25 minutes, or until onions are soft and the zucchini is slightly browned.
  4. Take sheet pan out of oven, and pour marinara all over the top of the zucchini.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake until golden brown, about 5+ minutes
  6. I like to turn the broiler on the last few minutes to make sure it’s extra golden delicious.
