Roasted or Grilled Herbed Summer Squash

A great way to use slightly oversize zucchini, summer squash or patty pan.

Prepare marinade by chopping fresh herbs: basil, thyme and oregano work well, but what is your fancy? Chop garlic finely and add to herbs. Your choice on how much garlic! Mix with a good amount of olive oil, add salt and pepper, and let sit for flavors to blend. Amounts? Try one-quarter cup minced herbs and garlic to one cup olive oil.

Meanwhile, slice summer squash in one-quarter inch slices. they can be thicker, but no thinner - they will fall apart. mix marinade into slices and let sit, stirring occasionally.

Spread slices out on a cookie tray and drizzle marinade over, turning to coat. Let sit as long as you have time, then heat oven to 375 degrees. Roast until done, turning occasionally. Slices are done when soft and slightly browned.
