Believe me I am not trying to change this blog in to a food blog, sadly I would never make it in that world. With that said I just can’t help but share a few recipes from time to time, especially when they are tasty, easy and even more exciting use vegetables from our garden. I gotta use them up somehow!
The other night we created one of my mother in laws recipes. So delicious, low calorie, and easy that I am excited to share our culinary success with the world. The main ingredient is the zucchini. To start we picked a HUGE zuc from the garden and hoped for the best.
Next you slice them up like a banana so you have a bunch of round pieces.
How you choose to layer is totally up to your taste… but much like a lasanga (note that there are not noodles in this dish). The meal is all about the layers.
This is what we did:
-In a skillet I browned hamburger meat, added garlic (from the garden) and onion, salt and pepper to taste, and some green peppers diced (from the garden).
-I then sliced up mozzarella cheese into thin pieces
1) first layer zucchini circles to fill the casserole dish
2) second layer meat and vegetable sauce
3) third layer mozzarella cheese
I repeated three times. On the very top lay a layer of the zucchini, the meat sauce and cheese to seal it all in.
Bake on 375 for about 30-40 minutes. Then enjoy this healthy meal made straight from the garden (Farmer’s Market or Grocery Store).
Even my mom who tends to eat on the unhealthy side loved this dish!
