Ingredients

5-6 yellow summer squash or zucchini, about 8 inches long

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup very finely chopped mint, or more

salt to taste

1 cup crumbled Feta cheese

fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 475 F, and put oven rack as high as it will go. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Wash squash and cut off stem and flower ends. Cut each squash into quarters lengthwise, then cut into pieces about 2 inches long. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, mint and salt ; then put that mixture into a plastic bowl and toss squash with the mixture. Arrange squash on roasting pan, in a single layer as much as possible. Roast squash, turning every 15-20 minutes, until slightly browned and cooked to your liking. I turned my squash twice, with a total cooking time of 45 minutes, but I would start checking after 35 minutes. When the squash is done, put it back into the same bowl and toss with the Feta cheese. Season with fresh-ground black pepper to taste. This can be served hot or at room temperature. .
