Whats for Dinner? Rosemary Garlic Baked Chicken, Parmesan Roasted Potatoes & Sauteed Squash and Zucchini

 Eating healthy can be really great, or really boring. I personally can not eat the same thing every day, that is why it is difficult for me to meal prep. I like some variation. Here is an idea for a very healthy meal with a flavorful veggie side that's easy to make, and perfect to add to your meal prep or dinner menu. Also, my weakness- potatoes, Parmesan roasted to be exact.

Sauteed Squash and Zucchini

  • 4 to 5 zuchinni
  • 4 to 5 yellow squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sliced onions
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
 Slice zucchini and squash.. I'd say about 1/4 inch thick. Heat olive oil and saute onion until tender. Add zucchini and squash. Toss until tender and crisp, about 8 minutes.  Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to your liking. Turn off heat and cover allowing mixture to soften. About 10 minutes. ENJOY!

I love squash and zucchini... It is so flavorful and is a great texture.. You can play around with this recipe and add tri-color peppers, and even potatoes...... Stay tuned the recipes for the other items mentioned above.

  • About 6 to 8 medium red or gold potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven 425 degrees. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Transfer to an olive oil greased baking dish and bake for 35-50 min on the top rack. ENJOY!

The potatoes will form a crispy goodness on the outside and be tender and moist on the inside. YUMMYYY!
