Zucchini and Potato Bake
|Chop Red Pepper.|
|Cut zucchini into chunks.|
I am not a big fan of plain zucchini which means, I always do something to it to make it tasty. I see it as much too bland when it is plain but I find it as a great vegetable to pick up the flavor of condiments and spices. As a result, I find it great to mix with other vegetables, setting up a diversity of flavors. Since, I have so many zucchini in the house, I am making a few dishes to use them up. One of these appealed to me since I was yearning savory dishes, at the time, I made the following recipe.
I admit, it was the potatoes in this recipe that drew me to it. For me, zucchini just does not sell itself unless it is in a kugel or pancake.
