I’ve always been a believer that less is more, and this Roasted Tomatoes and Zucchini Recipe supports that theory. With just a few simple ingredients, this roasted vegetables side dish is incredibly flavorful, yet very low calorie. The cherry tomatoes are vibrant, and full of a tart, juicy flavor. While the tender, sweet zucchini contrasts it. The slightly smoky taste from the roasting enhances the natural flavor of the vegetables, and it truly just tastes amazing. It’s such an easy vegetable side dish recipe to make and it goes so well with a variety of meals. Serve it over rice with some soy sauce, on top of some 0 Points spaghetti squash, or just eat it by itself! NOTE: Because this recipe only involves vegetables and trace amounts of olive oil, I count it as 0 Points. However, if you enter the nutritional values into your Weight Watchers calculator, it comes up as 1 Point.
