With summer heat bearing down on so many back yard gardens, zucchini is about the only crop thriving. This week, we'll share ideas for turning zucchini into something zu-yummy. This recipe was shared (and enthusiastically recommended) by a zucchini-growing reader named Kim.
4-6 small zucchini, sliced and placed in well-greased baking dish
3 tablespoons butter or bacon grease-melted
3 tablespoons flour
3 large tomatoes (or 2 cups canned tomatoes) peeled and chopped
1 small green pepper-chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 bayleaf (remove before baking)
Pinch of ground clove
1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Cook all ingredients except for zucchini and Parmesan cheese for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Pour over zucchini and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
