Use some of your garden bounty to whip up this zesty quiche-like casserole that teams zucchini with cheese, onion, egg and jalapeno pepper. Dolores Kitzinger of Appleton, Wisconsin sent in the recipe. "You could serve it as a meatless main dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner," she notes.
Here’s a quick, colorful, grab-and-go pita lunch that gets rave reviews from all ages, says Brigid King in Macomb, Michigan. “I tweaked this meatless, versatile recipe years ago to lighten it and punch up the taste,“ she notes.
TIP: For Italian flavor, add pizza sauce and chopped pepperonis to the cheese and peppers, suggests Brigid King. A little salmon or some bacon bits mixed in the cream cheese make other tasty options.
Roasting peppers yields a sweet, smoky flavor, and a silky texture. Mix in some fresh basil, and you have a titillating treat! It's absolutely delicious, plus it contains less than one gram of fat and zero cholesterol. —Tammy Landry, Saucier, Mississippi
“My husband and I grow our own tomatoes and enjoy this simple, delicious salad all summer long,” shares Kim Bovino
in Milford, Connecticut. “It’s great with warm French bread and butter for lunch or can double as a quick appetizer.”
