This is the kind of dish that reminds you just how little you need to do to turn fresh zucchini and squash into something utterly delicious.
A perfectly relaxed Memorial Day recipe because it’s so incredibly simple, Easy Cheesy Zucchini combines fresh sliced summer veggies with fresh chopped basil, chopped green onions, a few seasonings and a handful of shredded cheeses – for a colorful dish that will appeal to adults and kids alike (cheesy being the key word here).
Easy Cheesy Zucchini is also a very adaptable recipe. Add to or remove any of the seasonings and herbs to suit your family’s tastes, but in my opinion, don’t skip the fresh basil! This is one of those herbs where the dried version just doesn’t offer the full flavor that the fresh version does. (And on a side note, if you’ve never tried growing fresh basil in your garden, it’s a cinch – once it takes off, you’re good to go! Give it a try.)
