Summer Squash and Tomatoes at

I needed a vegetable dish to go with my Chicken Breast on the Pellet Grill. I had fresh patty pan summer squash and tomatoes from my garden. When you have great flavours like that you have the makings of a great easy dish.

I cut some tomatoes into large chunks and added coarse chopped patty pans. You could use zucchini or any other summer squash. I added some olive oil and Italian seasoning blend and tossed them together in a casserole. Try and keep the vegetables one layer deep in the casserole but two layers wouldn’t hurt.

I coarsely chopped 75 ml (1/3 cup) gruyere cheese and set it aside.

I put the casserole in a smoker heated to 350 F. You could do them in a 350 F oven.

After 15 minutes, I sprinkled the gruyere cheese over the vegetables and baked for another 15 minutes.

I took them out and served.

They went very well with grilled chicken breasts and oven fried potatoes.

The Verdict

Simple is often delicious. This dish is a perfect example of this. The tomato is bright and fresh. The summer squash gives a great texture and the gruyere gives it a cheesy taste that goes great with the tomatoes.
