Zucchni Bake

When I think of Summer many things come to mind. Such as the smell of sunscreen and the feel of sand between your toes. The sight of bathing suits and beach towels hanging to dry in the backyard. Cherries, peaches and watermelon. And after a long day at the beach or lounging in a chair with the latest summer read you have ample time to think about what's for dinner. This is the time of year to splurge on local fruits and vegetables because they are guaranteed to taste so much better than those coming from Mexico and California. Tomatoes and zucchini are two veggies we have been eating a lot of lately.

This is one of the zucchini recipes I have tried out recently. You can serve it as a main dish like I did or as a side dish. If you are going to serve this as a main you will want to include some artisan bread and a salad or some sliced tomatoes on the side. I made my own mix of cheeses by grating up a mixture of Parmesan, Mozzarella and Havarti. I also used fresh garlic in place of the garlic powder.
