Looking for an easy recipe to use up that summer zucchini or squash? Best Grilled Zucchini uses a handful of staple kitchen ingredients for a marinade, cooks on the grill in minutes, and is topped with fresh lemon and parmesan.
In a large ziplock bag place olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, and pepper. Shake to mix together marinade ingredients.
Cut zucchini or squash in long spears and add to marinade. Shake bag to combine. Set aside at room temperature for 15 minutes, up to 1 hour.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Oil grate and grill zucchini about 3-5 minutes per side or until charred and cooked. Remove grilled zucchini to a baking sheet. Immediately drizzle fresh lemon juice over and sprinkle hot zucchini with parmesan.

Grilled Zucchini Slices
Trim off the stems and slice each squash horizontally, into 1/2 inch thick circles. You can still place the slices on the grill, but turn carefully so they don't fall through the grate. Alternatively, use a grill basket placed on the grill or a grill pan (affiliate links) on your stove.
Oven roasting method
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Lay the zucchini or squash in a single layer on a sheet pan, with space between each spear so the heat can circulate around the veggies.
Roast for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from oven, squeeze on lemon juice and sprinkle with fresh parmesan.
