Garden Fresh Fast Food

At current count, we have five summer squash and seven tomatoes in the old enamel washbasin on our counter.  There’s more coming too.

I just can’t keep up with the crop.

Here’s a quick dinner side dish or delicious lunch idea to use up some of that bounty from your garden or local farm stand:

  • Slice a summer squash (zucchini works well too) and two small tomatoes
  • Saute the summer squash first in a tablespoon of light olive oil until a sort of softened al dente and then add tomatoes
  • Add slivers of fresh basil and toss frequently to mix all the lusciousness
  • Top with shredded fresh Parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of Feta until just warmed and a teeny bit melted

(I had no idea these cheeses would play so nicely together!)

  • Sprinkle a bit of salt, some fresh ground pepper


And serve.
