I got an email the other day asking me what I ended up making with those little baby squash & zucchini I scored at the Farmer's Market. Remember these...

I actually had taken food porn of the dish I made with them but with Mum's Day & the contest it never went up. So by request for Jen in Alaska...

Shelly's Baby Zucchini Bake

1 Maui Onion, sliced
3-4 Green Onions, diced
1 lb. Baby Zucchini and/or Summer Squash (3-4 young squash if you can't find these)
8-10 Mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 cup Bruschetta Sauce (refrigerated fresh pasta section)
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

Saute onions till golden. Add zucchini, mushrooms, garlic, bruschetta sauce and steam saute with the lid on till tender but still firm about 5 minutes. Add seasonings. Mix to combine. Pour into a Pyrex casserole dish. Top with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 till golden and yummy.

I served this Baby Zucchini Bake as a side with BBQ'd burgers. It was the perfect side. Nice and moist which always help meats like burgers keep heading in the right direction if you know what I'm saying ;)

It was 92° yesterday & today is supposed to be even hotter. It is still May? I didn't fall asleep like Rip Van Freakin' Winkle and it fast forward to August? So hotter errr I might need to pack the Super Cool Bento Box and head west to the beach (20°+ cooler) hmmm or maybe a movie in AC. Anyone see "17 Again?" Looks super cute.
