Summer Vegetables with Tomato Sauce


I passed the Praxis! Now I just have to send away all my paperwork and I will be able to teach another subject. I have been MIA with all the studying that I have done, but I am back! And we are going out to dinner tonight.

This is one of my favorite dishes during the summer time. It really is the epitome of summer. All the ingredients are fresh and even could be grown in your garden. My garden isn’t doing too well this year, so these did not come from my garden. People seem to be giving their zucchini’s away like candy though and this one was a gift. We do also make this in the winter with peas instead of zucchini.

Anthony’s family calls this dish, funky Italian vegetables. It’s an easy side and will help you use up all the zucchini that I hope you’re having luck growing. You can make this dish with sauce that you already made or if you don’t have frozen sauce in your freezer at all times like I do, you can just use a can of sauce. You can also make this with peppers, mushrooms or any other vegetable you like! Either way is pretty simple! It also makes awesome leftovers.
