Gearde taught me to make when I was in college. Serve with a salad and good
bread for a perfect meal.
Squash and Rice
Put a little olive oil in large pot. Add: 1small onion chopped and 1 clove
garlic , crushed. Saute a few minutes (do not let garlic burn). Then add: 3
small sliced, peeled zucchini (can slice in circles or half moons) and chunks of
2 bell peppers. Add 1 can sliced, stewed tomatoes or diced tomatoes (14.5 oz),
1 small can tomato paste, 2 paste cans of water, 1 bay leaf, salt and pepper.
Cover and simmer 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook 1 cup rice in water or broth--regular or brown. Remove bay leaf
from squash and add rice, fresh basil (I use the kind in a tube when I do not
have fresh) and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
Thanks Joni for sharing! Now I can't wait for my zucchini to come in!
