This recipe is something that's just been on my family or friends tables in the summer.
Italian Sauteed Zucchini
1-2 zucchini diced
1 onion diced
1 small tomato or a few cherry tomatoes diced
3-4 basil leaves
salt & pepper
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Put all the ingredients in a pan and cook for about 5-8 minutes till zucchini is tender and onions are clear. Toss once gently so it does not stick to the pan.
This makes a great side with chicken and rice, it can be served over pasta with parmesan cheese, or makes a great calzone with a little mozzarella cheese. The only thing missing was some fresh bread to go with this and a slice of cheese and that alone would be a tasty meal.
3. Beets, beets and more beets. That's one vegetable that has not grown on this family this summer. It's still a work in progress. I'm going to try again tonight either roast them or make them for a salad. My mother used the beet leaves in calzone. I'll see about giving that a try for lunch. Hoping today for a better day for these beets.
I'd love to hear what you're making or if you have any suggestions for the beets :)
