Recipe Box - Week 2
I had no name for this dish, I put together, this evening. I am finding it difficult to follow recipes from cookbooks or online. Almost always, I take the recipe, in another direction. That is what happened, today. I pulled out a few cookbooks, found a recipe for roasted cubes of vegetables in a tomato sauce and covered with cheese. It had veggies, I had in the house and the idea of roasting vegetables with a cheese topping intrigued me.
I ended up slicing the veggies thinly on the mandolin and separately putting piles of them, in a baking dish. I then dropped some spicy cheese on top, well spaced out. It was delicious.
1 yellow squash
1 mini red pepper
1 mini yellow pepper
1 mini orange pepper
1/4 green pepper
spray olive oil
3 slices from a twisted spicy mozzarella roll
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil (my basil is returning)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Spray a ten inch round baking pan with olive oil.
Layer vegetables, each in its own pile around the pan. Carrots ended in the middle of my baking pan.
Top, widely spaced, small pieces of cheese. I tried shredding it and it didn't work. It was too soft.
Spray olive oil on top of the dish, lightly.
Roast slices, checking at 10 minutes and every few minutes until cheese has turned golden brown.
Remove and enjoy.
*The seasoning can be varied to whatever you like. Garlic and rosemary.....Italian seasoning.....Chili powder for a spicier version.....this is up to taste.
Hi, I must admit, I excited about this new linky. I am going to start a Recipe Box on Pin It for as many photos, as possible, at least those that are featured. I was amazed at the variety of dishes, we got, last week and it was hard to choose those to be featured. For this week, I am going to to share those that got the most clicks. I am open to suggestions as to what is the best and most fair way, to do this, in the future. Please leave suggestions. I need your help.
Kale Salad - A Little Nosh
Crustless Pizza - Bookcase Foodie
Pineapple Macaroons - The Traveling Spoon
Easiest Way to Cook Spaghetti Squash - Gluten Free A-Z
Crumb Cake with Peanut Butter and Chocolate - Something Sweet

If I could cook all of these and have a feast, I would be a happy camper. Let's see what we can put together, this week. Thank you all for your support. I hope you will continue to share with us and let us build a full Recipe Box. Linked to Allergy Free Wednesday Real Food Wednesday Pennywise Platter
