Roasted Garlic Parmesan Zucchini

Life’s too short to waste your time with bland, tasteless veggies.. especially when this Roasted Garlic Parmesan Zucchini requires only 4 ingredients and 20 minutes to make!

Picture this…

 

You just got home after a long day at work and your stomach is rumbling. Tired and hangry, you immediately head to the kitchen to start cooking dinner. But, just as you’re about to sit down and eat, you take a glance at the lonely chicken breast sitting on your plate and suddenly realize that you don’t have anything to eat with it. You dig through your freezer and come up with a bag of frostbitten veggies buried underneath a carton of ice cream you forgot that you bought a few weeks ago. When are these from? Who cares. You toss them into the microwave and continue to inhale your chicken breast. A few minutes later, you check back in on the veggies, only to find that they’ve magically transformed into a soggy pile of mush. You take one bite, toss the rest, and grab the carton of ice cream out of the freezer instead.

 

Sound familiar?
