When I saw this veggie side dish in Fresh from the Farmstand, it reminded me a lot of one of our favorite dishes, Italian Chicken Bake.
So I decided to whip this dish up the same way…
Oh… by the way… have you entered to win a copy of Fresh From the Farmstand?
There are just a few days left to enter.
I started out with 1 large zucchini- sliced and I cooked it up in a non-stick skillet with 1 T of Olive Oil.
The original recipe calls for 2 T, but when trimming recipes, the first thing I try to do is cut the oil at the beginning by using my non-stick or cast-iron or if I use a stainless steel skillet, I tend to use a little chicken broth in lieu of more oil.
Once the zucchini has cooked through, add 1 can diced tomatoes (15 oz).
I used Red Gold’s Basil, Garlic and Oregano Tomatoes because I am in LOVE with them 😉
I then added 2 cups (1 bag) of Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley… another product I love. Packed full of fiber and so convenient!
Stir it up and heat it through.
Now transfer to an oven safe pan, top with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and broil for 3-5 minutes.
The perfect side dish to a chicken breast or slow cooked pork… yum!
