Meet the Cook: Our family schedule is a little different than most - I am a waitress at Disney World, and many days I have to be at work before my husband comes home for supper. Because of that, I'll often leave Bacon Jardin on the stove for him to reheat. He loves it! I grew up in the country, in upstate New York. I know what it's like when the zucchini and tomatoes take over and everyone's looking for a different away to serve them. So I've passed this recipe along to my mom and other relatives back home. Not only is it quick and easy to prepare, it makes such wonderful use of fresh vegetables. -Sue Dragon, Orlando, Florida
