Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. And one of the easiest ways to prepare it is to roast them in the oven with a little garlic and olive oil. To season, I added dried oregano. Here is my recipe for Grilled Zucchini with Oregano.

The variety of zucchini I used is a “genovese” zucchini, straight from Italy. It is smaller than the classic zucchini and has a lighter green color. Of course, there is no problem to use any type of zucchini: green, yellow, round etc.
