End of Summer Zucchini Casserole

We’ve headed into fall and the remaining Romanesco zucchini need to be used…now what? I’d pretty much run through the  “zucchini repertoire” and I needed to come up with something for dinner.  There’s that leftover barbecued corn from the night before…hmmm.   Here it is…kind of macaroni and cheese without the macaroni using zucchini and corn instead!

Phyllis’ Leek And Bacon Tart

For a printer friendly version of this recipe, click here. Similar to my ramp (wild leek) tart but this one has nutmeg instead of herbs.  Not only is it delicious in the spring, but also in the fall & winter when the new leeks become available. Makes an 8″ or 9″ Tart Pre-baked pie shell** I prefer to use a glass pie dish […]
