I hope you have enjoyed my Recipes from A to Z this month. It's been the most enjoyable marketing for a new book that I've ever done. I appreciate all who followed along as we went from Amber Pie to Favorite Zucchini.
All of this month's recipes will be in my forthcoming cookbook, and many additional ones are posted on my website.
A food theme is easy when it comes to the letter Z thanks to good old zucchini-- one of the most versatile vegetables ever and plentiful year-round.
Because everything is better with bacon and cheese
2 strips uncooked bacon, cut in pieces
5 or 6 medium unpeeled zucchini, cut in chunks
1 small onion, chopped
1 large tomato, peeled and chopped
Pinch of sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup Monterey jack cheese, grated
Place bacon in saucepan, add all other ingredients except for cheese. Cover tightly and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Add cheese just before serving. 4 servings.
