It’s zucchini season, and my goal this year is not to let any of the zucchinis grow into monsters. That means I am out every day picking one or two zucchinis and trying to figure out what to do with them!
This cheesy potato and zucchini bake is a quick and easy way to use up one or two zucchinis and it’s a great side dish for lots of meals so we’ve been eating it a lot lately!
This goes really well with chicken or steak or sausages, and is a nice change from chips and roast potatoes which are always on high rotation at our house.
The thing I love most about this side dish is that it all goes in one big baking dish, so there is only one dish to clean up at the end of the meal.
Plus you can’t really go wrong when you combine potatoes, zucchini, garlic and herbs and then add a little cheese, now can you?

Feel free to add other veggies to this simple side dish – pumpkin or carrots would all be delicious and will definitely make an appearance at our house if we ever get any flowers of on our pumpkins!
And be a little adventurous with your herbs! I throw in whatever I have in the garden but I think this would also be great with a little extra spicy zing of paprika or mild chilli.
If you are growing zucchinis in your garden, here’s a few more ways to eat them all!
