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!
I came across a recipe on Instagram originally posted by MegunUnprocessed and it looked interesting. I thought I would add my own touches, ingredients, and season and roast the cherry tomatoes rather than cook on the stovetop. The results were nothing short of spectacular.
There are several new vegan feta kinds of cheese on the market these days and this was my first time cooking with the Trader Joe’s brand. I think I will always opt for this vegan feta because the taste was smooth and creamy rather than overly pungent.
You can use any type of pasta and it is also ok to use dried, rather than fresh basil but the fresh, in my opinion, definitely makes a better pasta dish.
A huge shout out to Twospoons.ca for posting their mushroom pasta recipe which was featured on Vegan Feed Gram. It was a great inspiration for my creation shown here. This is a super-fast dinner idea and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
You can experiment with different types of veggies and also pasta. I used what I had in my pantry and am delighted with the deliciousness of this dish!
