"I won a community recipe contest several years ago with this spicy dish," relates Jackie Selover of Sidney, Ohio. "I make it often for my family, but it's pretty enough to serve guests." Red pepper flakes put a little zing in the shrimp, and the lightly sauteed veggies are crisp-tender and colorful.
This recipe was born out of frustration as to what I was going to do with a bumper crop of zucchini one year. It was an instant hit! Now I prepare this autumn casserole for church dinners and family gatherings.
My family has been fixing grilled mixed vegetables as a side dish for a long time. To make them more substantial, I added pasta. Then, to give the salad a Mediterranean flair, I tossed in some olives and feta cheese. —Tina Repak Mirilovich, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Your garden's bounty will be put to good use in this delightful entree, which resembles a pizza. When I find a recipe like this that’s so well received, I make a copy, put it in a protective sleeve and store it in a binder so I can make it again.—Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin
“I came up with the recipe when my garden was producing like crazy and I had lots of fresh zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes," writes Dawn E Bryant of Thedford, Nebraska. "I combined the three, added herbs, garlic and feta and came up with a colorful, flavorful dish that I really love. My son eats it up like crazy too.”
