Roasted Zucchini with cheese

From Sharon's garden in Victoria

Sharon gave me this odd colour zucchini from her  Oak Bay garden explaining that this European seed produced a much tastier vegetable than the local produce, and it did! This one was hand-picked and harvested by Richard on  September 15th.

Growing zucchini and squash is going to be one of my new projects for next year. I also plan to try “Potiron” a beautiful large orange squash from France which makes the best soup.

All I did was follow Sharon’s instructions, cut up the peeled zucchini in slices, lay them in a pyrex dish greased with olive oil. Add  chopped garlic and loads of grated Asiago cheese. It then baked slowly for 45 minutes. It was  so good, I will have to make more with the local zucchini  next year!

Last night dinner: Sharon's zucchini, Carling's tomatoes, Dunnery's Cadboro Bay crab cakes and the chanterelle tart served with Balsamic vinegar
