Zucchini Bake for One


The person that thinks dinner for one should be takeout, a simple PB&J, and/or a bag of chips might be the same person that uses their oven for storage. Yes, I'm speaking from experience here. I mean, why bother going through all the trouble if it's just you, right? Uh, because you're worth it! 

And, you will save money, eat healthily, and because it's fun! If you are expecting a guest, simply double the recipe. Quadruple it if you're a family of four. You do you, boo. Enjoy!
