” Fresh summer vegetables paired with creamy polenta baked

I recommend serving it with crusty garlic bread. “

3 carrots, sliced
1 large zucchini, sliced
1 large yellow squash, sliced
1 red onion, chopped
red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup spaghetti sauce
4 cups olive oil for frying

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 Saute carrots, zucchini, squash, onion and bell pepper in a
large saucepan with a small amount of olive oil.

Saute vegetables for approximately 5 minutes and pour in spaghetti sauce.
Stir, cover and simmer until vegetables are slightly tender.
3 Slice polenta into 1/2 inch circles and season with garlic salt and pepper.

Cauliflower Souffle

Preparation time – 10 minutes, plus time to cook cauliflower
if you don’t have leftovers

Here’s the original “crustless quiche” recipe. I think Elissa first
posted it here. I don’t use the nutmeg or cloves or onion but do use lots
of garlic and sometimes thyme or oregano. Also it doesn’t seem to need
the added salt, but then I’m used to low-salt foods. Haven’t tried the
ricotta or cream variations. Colby (yellow) and string/mozzarella or
jack (white) cheeses work as well as cheddar. One of these days I will
try it with pepper jack (jack cheese with jalapen~os and red peppers and
stuff in it). Nuking didn’t work as well as baking for me — came out
kinda dry tasting. I pre-steamed the cauliflower in the uwave though.

1/2 cup steamed, mashed cauliflower (leftover works fine)
1 egg
1/4 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta)
2T grated cheddar cheese
pinch of nutmeg
dash of cloves
salt, pepper to taste
onion/garlic (optional)

Mix all ingredients together, nuke for 5 minutes
or bake for 20. If you use 1/4 cup of heavy cream instead
of the cottage/ricotta cheese, it will be more like a quiche
than a souffle.
