85. pasta primavera with Italian turkey sausage

leave a comment »

Recipe source:

If you have an abundance of summer garden produce at your disposal, then you really need to make this dish.

I stumbled upon this recipe a few years ago, and I’ve made it every summer since. It’s perfect for when you have a lot of vegetables ready to go in your garden. I generally follow the recipe almost exactly, but you could substitute in whatever vegetables are ripe in your yard.

This time, I found everything I needed in our garden except for the yellow squash, so I doubled the zucchini instead.

Also, the recipe calls for farfalle pasta, but I didn’t have any, so I used a box of rotini I had on the shelf.

79. zucchini and turkey dish

Summer garden produce is starting to explode from our garden, and so I’m on the lookout for garden-veggie-heavy recipes. I also was looking for something easy I could put in the crockpot.

This was good, though not fantastic. BP had two helpings, and I thought the leftovers were better than the original.


zucchini and turkey dish


3 c. zucchini, sliced

1 small onion, chopped

1/4 tsp. salt

1 c. cubed cooked turkey

2 fresh tomatoes, sliced

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried basil

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 c. shredded Provolone cheese

3/4 c. Pepperidge Farms stuffing

Combine zucchini, onion, salt, turkey, tomatoes, oregano and basil in slow cooker. Mix well.

Top with cheeses and stuffing.

Cover. Cook on low 8-9 hours. (When I went home and lunch and checked it, I turned it to the warm setting for the rest of the day. I felt like it was plenty done in 4 hours.)

73. southwest zucchini boats

with one comment

Recipe source: Simple & Delicious, June/July 2010, but I found it here for you online

If you do not have a garden, you take yourself right now to the nearest farmer’s market and buy yourself some zucchini and cilantro so that you can make this meal.

This was my first taste of zucchini this season, and I was reminded of how much I love it. Now, all I can think about is fried zucchini, zucchini bread and eating the rest of these zucchini boats tomorrow!
