One of my favorite things about summer?


Zucchini.

Simple, delicious, and filling ... We love it sauteed until it's still crisp-tender. This time I tossed in some fresh tomatoes, canned mushrooms (it's all I had) that I sauteed first in a bit of butter, onions, and garlic. Finished it off with a bit of homegrown tarragon and basil, a little cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Tossed a bit of real Parmesan cheese on top ...



It's not fancy, but it's about as easy as dinner comes. We paired our summer dish with some quinoa (a complete protein AND a grain) for a complete meal.

Best part?

It took about 15 minutes to prepare, and both kids liked it enough to head back for seconds.
