End of Summer Vegetable Bake

 End of Summer Vegetable Bake
Meet the Cook: When my husband worked as a deputy ag commissioner, he'd bring me bushels of vegetables from area farms. This pretty side dish is the result - it's easy to fix but impressive enough for company. We're busy retirees with five grown kids and a menagerie ranging from show dogs to miniature donkeys. -Judy Williams, Hayden, Idaho
