Recipe: Tomato Zucchini Bake

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day! Yesterday was a very good day because I was able to adopt a new dog for my grandparents! They have a younger dog already and they wanted him to have a playmate and I found the perfect pup yesterday! They were so happy :) I know that they sometimes get lonely and they have always loved dogs and their company. Thanks Oconee County Humane Society!

He is SO precious! His name is O'Malley!

First Meeting!

Tonight I cooked something that I began cooking years ago. I haven't made it in a very long time. 
I know the #1 thing I hear from people is that they don't have time to cook and #2 is that recipes often look too complicated. Well, this recipe only has 4 ingredients and I don't think it could be any more simple! :)

-3 Medium sized Zucchinis, sliced ~1/4" thick
-3 Roma Tomatoes, sliced ~1/4" thick
-Approx. 1/2 cup Cheese (I used Sargento Reduced Fat Italian Mix Cheese)
-Pepper for seasoning

-Preheat oven to about 350 F
-Spray a little Pam to cover the bottom of a baking dish
-Place a layer of sliced zucchini in the bottom of the baking dish

-Top the zucchini with a little pepper for seasoning and a little cheese (~1/8 cup)
-The next layer will be tomatoes topped with a little more cheese (~1/8 cup)

-Keep layering until all zucchini and tomatoes are used
-Top the final layer with a little cheese (~1/8 - 1/4 cup) and pepper

-Place in oven. I baked it for about 35 minutes, the zucchini was still crisp. If you want the zucchini softer, simply cook for a longer time, about 10 more minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
