We're leaving tomorrow for our trip to Yosemite, and I've been trying to use up all our perishables. Last night, I grabbed a red bell pepper, a green one, a large white onion, a couple of cloves of garlic and some olive oil and sauteed the whole mess. Then I dumped in a can of plum tomatoes and sauteed some more. Digging around in my fridge, I pulled out three small zucchini. Sliced 'em thick and tossed them in.
The smell at this point was heavenly. But I wanted...something else. So I put the mixture in a casserole dish, topped it with about 1/4 cup of heavy cream, put on some panko bread crumbs and dotted the whole thing with butter and baked it until it had a nice crust on the top.
It was perfect. So perfect that I dreamed about it, and had leftovers for breakfast. Sometimes, the best food comes from spontaneous throw-stuff-in-pans cooking, doesn't it?
I'll be back on Tuesday with a new menu and photos. Have a wonderful weekend!
