Alright – I’m still a little pumped about what happened at my dinner table tonight so I just wanted to share this recipe since it went over well with all 3 kids – even my picky eater.

I’ve been trying to cut down on meat and double and triple up the veggies at dinner lately and as I’m sure lots of you have experienced – it can be a little tricky.  I made a zucchini recipe tonight as our main dish (not the one pictured above, but very similar) and 2 of my kids asked for seconds and my super super SUPER picky eater fussed for a few minutes but after trying the first bite finished in about 5 minutes!  Here’s what we did:

Mild Italian Sausage links – chopped up and fried.  Set aside.

4 diced green and yellow squash.  I sliced about 1/2 inch thick, then cut those rounds into 4ths (triangle chunks).
Heat 1 Tbs olive oil to med. high and toss in zucchini chunks. Lightly pepper and garlic salt.
Roast until just starting to crisp on the outside, and barely softened – NOT mushy.
Add back the Italian Sausage chunks and fry another minute or two.

I served with a bit of crumbled feta on top and rice pilaf on the side.

If you grow a garden, you’ll most likely end up with squash coming out your ears in a few months here – so don’t let it go to waste!
