Recipe: Cheesy Zucchini Squash Bake


If you’re a fan of cheese, zucchini and squash, this recipe is for you!


It makes a great side dish for any meal. The best part is, you can use as much (or as little, but why?) cheese as you’d like. This dish is best served right out of the oven. 



2 medium yellow squash, cut into half-moon slices

2 medium zucchini, cut into half-moon slices

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion

1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1-2 cups shredded parmesan cheese

½ tablespoon Italian seasoning

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, for garnish

1/2 teaspoon breadcrumbs 

Salt and pepper to taste



1. Preheat oven to 375.

2. Spray a baking dish (I used the standard 13.2 x 8.9) with cooking oil.

3. Combine zucchini, squash, garlic, 1 cup of both cheeses, green onion, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in the dish. Stir until squash is coated in cheese and spices are well-distributed.

4. Bake for ~20 minutes. 

5. Check squash with a fork to make sure it’s mostly tender.

6. Remove from oven and sprinkle rest of the cheese on top, along with the breadcrumbs and red pepper flakes.

7. Bake for another 10 mins., or until cheese is melted and squash is fully baked. 

8. Serve and enjoy!
