  1. This was quick and easy.  I used oregano from the garden and it was delicious.  Will definitely make it again.

  2. Delicious, easy, and healthy!

  3. An excellent and easy way to prepare the “baby” zucchini.  We had them for dinner last night with seared salmon and rice pilaf.  This recipe goes into the dinner file!!

  4. This is one of my favorite, quick go-to meals when I'm needing extra veggies for the day. And it goes with about any protein: fish, chicken, pork.

  5. Getting zucchini out of the garden now. Pinning this to try!

  6. I have a question abou the points. Where does the 3 points come from. 1 tablespoon of olive oil is 3 points – and if the recipe is for two people shouldn't the points be 1 or 2? Im just curious where the points came from other than the olive oil. Im thinking maybe I havent been accuratly counting my cooked vegetables if these are 3 points!
    Thanks!

  7. Dried or fresh oregano?

  8. I have a question about the calorie count on this dish. My calorie count in the olive oil is 120 per tablespoon. I just wanted to know how it added up to 87.3? On another note, I LOVED this recipe, I made it tonight. Thanks!

  9. I picked up some baby zucchini at the store and wasn't sure what to do with it. So, I googled baby zucchini recipes and look what came up first. I should have checked here first. Thanks again, Gina!!!

  10. I am a student and love quick and cheap stir-fry's. I am looking for some yummy spring stir-fry ideas? Any ideas? I'm sick of the regular blah and boring stir-fry 🙂 Thank you!! Love this site.

  11. I'm not Kelele, but I need more 0 and 1 point veggie sides. 🙂
    I do broccoli, zucchini (and yellow squash), asparagus, and green beans alot.

  12. Sure, I have so many veggies, what did you have in mind?

  13. Gina you are a genius. This recipe is YUM! Will you post more veggie recipes?

  14. Thanks Rose, and lol, you caught me at my computer I guess!

  15. Pleeaasseee make a recipe book for us to buy!!!

  16. Wow, that's the quickest reply I have ever gotten from a blog!! Thanks for the quick response! I have lost weight, 10lbs., by watching my fat and carbs. This site is perfect for it. I love the fact that you have a ton of veg recipes! I'm a newbie and excited to try many. I did the chicken with feta last night and there was none left! Does that tell you anything???

  17. Sure, cut them in quarter sized wedges, 2 cups is about right.

  18. I'm a newbie…can you use regular zucchini? About 2 cups?

  19. They look delicious!!

  20. I've never had/seen baby zucchini. I will have to look for it at the store. This sounds fabulous!

  21. Probably a little over 2 cups.

  22. this was so tasty! definitely going to be a go-to dish! i was wondering, though, you say the 20 baby zucchinis are 2 servings…how many cups is that?

  23. I tried this and really loved it so did the men in my family

  24. Awesome Missy!

  28. Thanx Gina for another fab idea. I was naughty and toped with a little bit of grated cheese!

  29. this is completely my kind of food…….first time here n loved your blog……will be back.

  30. @Marta, that sounds yummy!

  31. I think these would be great topped with some chevre as a side for grilled chicken! Hahaha the chevre would probably up the point count, woudln’t it?!
    Enjoy Mother’s Day!

  36. Beautiful! Our garden is overflowing with squash, and we love to cook them like this. Just found your blog and I love it. Off to check out more recipes.

  37. Hi Gina,

    Lately I’ve been slightly scraping out the seeds of the zucchini to make a “well” then adding 1/2 a tablespoon of parm and sprinkling it with shake n bake then baking with dinner. It’s GREAT!

  38. Yum! I’ve been eating a lot of asparagus, but know I’m going to need to get some baby zucchini to try this!

    I have passed along the Super Blog award to you 🙂

  39. I love all the varieties of baby vegetables that are available now! Yum!

  40. Mmmmm…and when they get that touch of brown on them – perfection!
