Besides the Farmers Market I posted about last week, I love going to the Bangerter Farm early on Saturday mornings, a family owned farm up the road a piece that sells wonderful vegetables and fruit from now 'till Fall. They had all the ingredients I needed for my favorite zucchini~tomato side dish, except for tomatoes... next week they will have those... I brought my little stash of veggies home, dreading using the "blah" store bought tomatoes, when my sweet neighbor Keith and his little doggie Pita, (the precious Pomeranian in my last post about dog days) came to my door with a bagful of his homegrown beauties. So I whipped up two casserole dishes, one for Jack and me and one for my generous neighbor and his wife, a "thank~you" for bringing me these juicy treasures that make my mouth water... Here is the recipe, turns out every time and is really yummy!!!
1 Zucchini and 1 crookneck (summer) squash
2 (or more) medium tomatoes
1 medium green pepper chopped
1 cup chopped onion (I use Bermuda for this)
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper
Wash and slice zucchini and summer squash, wash and slice tomatoes. Alternate in baking dish, then sprinkle with green pepper and onions. Salt and pepper, then drizzle the top with olive oil. Broil five minutes then bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring once. I add grated Parmesan cheese when I serve this...Yum!!!
