My husband loves my zucchini and summer squash casserole but I wanted to try something different with the delectable squash.
In my opinion, this is even better than my eggplant parmesan and the perfect light, satisfying summer dinner. I love salad, especially during the warmer months, but sometimes a fresh homecooked meal tastes especially great.
Zucchini, classified as a fruit because of its seeds, is super low in fat, carbs, and sugar and rich in nutrients including Vitamins A and C, B6, Potassium, Magnesium, and Manganese which helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors and is also necessary for normal brain and nerve functions.
The ingredients are simple and most likely you will have most of them available in your refrigerator. You can serve this dish with a fresh salad or a side of pasta.
It comes together in about 20 minutes and bakes for about 40 minutes. Therefore from knife to plate you will have an amazing dish in only an hour!
When my husband and I were first married, I used to make quiche several times a year. I am not sure why I have not made it in recent years but am happy I made some today!
If you are not a fan of asparagus, you can substitute spinach, broccoli, or cauliflower. This recipe comes together in about 30 minutes and can be made ahead and served at room temperature, heated in the microwave, or cold.
It is always great with a side salad or some freshly sliced tomatoes. You can also use any pie crust recipe or the refrigerated version.
This recipe makes 2 pie dishes and is good in the refrigerator for about a week. You can also slice it and freeze individual portions that can be defrosted and reheated in the microwave.
Now is the time! From now and through June is the best season to eat asparagus here in the USA! I created this recipe and although it takes a few steps, it is well worth the effort!
I would definitely recommend this for a comforting-yet-elegant dinner or even as a side or main dish for Easter!
