Summer Veggie Medley

I would love to tell you I have a beautiful garden filled with fresh vegetables that provide our family with food.  But I'd be a liar.  I have the opposite of a green thumb - I have even killed "lucky bamboo" twice!

I do love to cook with fresh vegetables and feel like a good mom when I feed my family veggies.   Grocery stores are filled with zucchini, squash, green beans and tomatoes right now so I have been cooking with those a lot recently.  To mix things up I found this recipe and changed it up a bit to fit my family.  I have actually made this awesome recipe twice in the past week because it was so good!

What You Need:
2 yellow squash - sliced
2 zucchini - sliced
2 romas tomatoes or 1 large tomato - diced
1/2 onion - chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1.5 tbsp brown sugar
.5 tbsp italian seasoning
1 8oz can of tomato sauce

3-4 slices of bacon - cooked and chopped


How to Make It:
Chop all your veggies.
Heat EVOO in skillet over medium heat.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the skillet except the bacon. 


  Cook for 15-20 minutes or until veggies are cooked.
Cover with bacon and serve!

This is such a fun way to eat veggies!  Brown sugar and bacon in one dish - what could be better?!  Depending on what your grocery store or garden have you could customize this recipe.  Have fun with it and watch your kids eat veggies!

  2. I often combine zucchini and tomatoes and thought, "Yep, that's my kind of recipe." Then I saw bacon and knew I'd love it!

  3. Love this! So good. I make something similar with eggplant, but I never thought of adding bacon. Thanks for the tip!
