The mild spice peppers are wonderful for kabobs or grilled whole for some lovely flare to your BBQ meal. The zephyr summer squash also add some lovely color to a grilled vegetable medley. Last week, Deb brought along this recipe, which made some super yummy lunches this week:
4 c. grated zucchini
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese
Mix together and put into a casserole dish, bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until set.
Top with tomato sauce and any pizza toppings you like
Bake another 15-20 minutes at 400.
