~Mr. Squash meet Miss Zuchini, a marriage made in Heaven~

What do you do with all that Zuchini and Squash? Well ive been getting creative and finding ways to use it! Heres a few things I have made in the past couple weeks using Squash and Zuchini. Im sure I will have future posts featuring these 2 yummy squashes. I hope you enjoy and happy eating! Lets see where to start!
Tortellini Pasta!
I sauted in olive oil
1 Garlic Clove chopped up
10 Basil leaves roughly chopped
1 Small Zuchinni
1 Small Yellow Squash
Cherry Tomato's
Cracked Black Pepper to taste
A pinch of Kosher Salt
 As the veggies were cooking I boiled the Tortellini
Once all was done, I combined all the ingrediants together and drizzled a little olive oil.
Then sprinkle Parmesian cheese over the Tortellini
Its so yummy! The Tortellini I used is from Trader Joe's and its filled with cheese.
You can also eat this minus the Tortellini! Its very yummy by itself!
My next most Favorite thing is Fried Zuchini!
I coat the Zuchini slices in flour
Dip them in egg
Roll them in Italian Bread Crumbs
Then fry them in oil
Then sprinkle them with Parmesian cheese
We eat alot of these for lunch! Hard to be on a diet in this house!
Notice how one of the fried Zuchinis kinda looks like Italy! Looks like the boot on the map, lol.
Here are a few other pictures that ive probably posted before using the differnt squashes!
Here I pickled some Okra and Zuchini!
Veggie Lasgna
Garlic Chilli Chicken & Veggie Stir Fry
Last but not least!
Zuchini Bites!
I also add some chocolate chips to give it extra yumminess!
A little something extra! My son hauling in a load of Zuchini from the garden!
If  you have any ideas on using squashes in recipes, please share! We could I always use a new recipe!
