herbed tomato sauce

favorite pizza toppings, cheese, meats, etc.


Preheat oven 450°F.

Drain the grated zucchini in needed. Place the zucchini pulp in mixing bowl with eggs, flour and seasonings. Mix thoroughly.

Spread the mix onto a shallow oiled pan and bake for 8 minutes.

Return to oven and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes at 350°F until cheese is browned.

Grilled/pan-seared zucchini and summer squash

These vegetables are made for grilling/pan searing. Remove the stems and ends and slice longways, about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with olive oil that  has salt, pepper and paprika (optional). The grill or pan should be very hot before adding the squash. Resist the urge to turn them until they are well browned/starting to blacken -about 4 minutes.

Pull them off the heat and drizzle with more olive oil that has been blended with fresh basil leaves.
