Veggie Overload

This past week, we have had an over abundance of squash, zucchini and cucumbers sent to us by my parents... strait from the garden!! There's no way I was letting them go to waste, but when I say there was a lot, I mean a lot. In the last week, we have had squash and zucchini 5 times, have made 12 jars of pickles with the cucumbers and have the rest soaking in venegar.

How in the world do you cook squash and zucchini 5 ways, you ask? Grilled, Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake (Kendol loved!), Zucchini Casserole (I loved!!), Shish-ka bobs and last but not least a spaghetti sauce concoction. While you can never go wrong with grilled veggies, out of the other three attempts the spaghetti sauce concoction was the best. I guess it could be considered a Veggie Parmesan... Yea, we'll go with that.

Veggie Parmesan
1 Jar of Spaghetti Sauce 
(Prego Traditional is the bomb... just sayin..)
1 Large Zucchini
1 Large Squash
Parmesan Cheese
Mozz Cheese

Slice your veggies. Pour a little sauce in the bottom of your baking dish to keep anything from sticking. Throw in your veggies. Salt & Pepper. Cover with a little bit of both cheeses. Cover with the rest of the spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top. Bake for 45 minutes on 350. Serve with garlic bread (duh!).

This particular amount made about 3 big servings at our house. Feel free to add in as much squash and zucchini as you want! (Remember it shrinks) I may even throw in some hamburger meat next time!! Can't go wrong.

I may be biased bc I love anything with a tomato sauce and cheese, but this was delish!! We ate the entire dish in about 5 minutes........ and very low cal. 

Now I just have to wait... for the tomatoes  and sweet G90 corn to be ready.
I can already taste the bacon and tomato sandwich now.
Nothing better than fresh veggies from the garden

And.... HOLY MOLY... I'm almost to 200 followers. What What!!

  1. Yum! I have been hitting up the Farmer's Markets lately because I love fresh veggies! I have been on the hunt for strawberries but maybe they are out of season in Colorado.. I have no idea haha.

  2. Im jealous of your extra fresh veggies!! I have been loading up at the grocery but there is nothing quite like them straight from the garden!

  3. we are about to have an overabundance of cucumbers. Do you have a good pickle recipe? Preferably dill?

    1. Yes!! I will get it to you tonight!

  4. Well, that sounds really good! Our growing season here is so short. I can't look forward to fresh zucchini until late July!

  5. I am definitely trying this! I love chicken parm, so I'm excited! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. Ahhh you just reminded me that I have zucchini I forgot about!

    My mom makes a similar dish but without the sauce, just lots of cheese. I'll have to try this recipe :)

  7. Yum Veggie Parm! Love your blog!
