Take out and toss in shrimp, lemon juice, parsley and feta cheese.

I bought cooked shrimp so the dish was ready to serve. If you get uncooked shrimp, place back in oven for another 15-20 mins or until shrimp are fully cooked.

Roasted Zucchini

Here’s another easy recipe for a side dish that will go well with any protein you make.

– I cut each Italian zucchini in half and cut it lengthwise twice.
– Place it on baking sheet skin down.
– Mince some garlic and place in small bowl. As garlic sits it becomes more flavorful.
– Mix some olive oil, pepper and complete seasoning with the garlic and brush on the zucchinis.
– Bake on 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes until the zucchinis are a bit brown on top.
