I love summer! There are so many reasons it is fabulous – the sunshine, pool days, all of the outdoor activities, picnics, and…of course…the availability of so many local fruits and veggies! Over the weekend my dad made a trip to my Uncle’s garden for some fresh produce and came back with tons of zucchini and squash!
This recipe is for those of you who enjoy the summer for all of it’s deliciousness and are wondering what you should make using up all of those veggies! My friend Kalyn sent me this recipe that she found on Kalyn’s Kitchen. I tweaked it a little bit using some ingredients I already had on hand and it turned out amazing!
2 medium-sized zucchini, cut in slices or half-moon slices
2 medium-sized yellow squash, cut in slices or half-moon slices
2-4 T chopped fresh basil (I used dry since I had it)
2 T thinly sliced onion
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup + 1/2 cup low-fat white cheese (I used an assortment of cheese: some pepper jack, colby jack and feta )
1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
