Follow-up

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.

I liked 17 Again. I was cute. Typical going back in time to change the future plot, but it was well done. Plus, Zac Efron is a total hottie!! I dont remember boys looking that good when I was in high school!

Have fun and stay cool. I too live in So. Cal and will be inside w/ the AC on watching the Laker game!

Okay, now I've got to find me some baby squash! I'm just afraid they will be too cute to cook. . .

How many servings did you get out of this bake? Does it freeze well?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Servings size will really depend on your Dr/nut plan and what I eat as an almost 3 year post-op is a very different amount than a 3 month, 6 month, or 4 year post-op.

I ate 1 scoop with a burger. I ate it all usually I can't get through a whole burger but I was super hungry that day and hadn't had lunch LOL ;)

All my stuff freezes well... it may not look as pretty defrosted and reheated but it tastes just as yummy. I freeze a lot.

Hope this helps,
