  • 2 yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red onion, cut into large wedges
  • ½ tbsp dried thyme
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  • First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat 1 large baking sheet or 2 medium-sized baking sheets with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Then, add the sliced summer squash, zucchini, and red onion to a large bowl. Add in the thyme, oregano, olive oil, salt, and pepper to the vegetables. Then stir to cover the vegetables evenly.
  • Transfer the vegetable mixture to the baking sheet(s), spreading evenly. Then put the vegetables in the oven on the center rack.
  • Roast the vegetables until they are tender and golden brown. Flip the vegetables 1-2 times to help them cook evenly. Roast vegetables for 25-30 minutes.



  • Make sure to coat the vegetables evenly with olive oil and seasonings so every bite has an amazing flavor.
  • Also, flipping the vegetables at least halfway through cooking will prevent one side from becoming overcooked.
  • If you have other vegetables on hand such as bell peppers, you can also add these for additional flavor and color!
