Ingredients

  • 1 Cup grated Cowgirl Creamery Organic Buckaroo or UnieKaas Robusto cheese
  • 25 wheat square crackers, preferably organic, crushed
  • 1/4 Cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 3 zucchini or yellow squash, preferably organic, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, toss together the cheese, cracker crumbs, parsley, onion, and thyme. In a large bowl, toss together the remaining ingredients.

Arrange the squash in a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish. Scatter the cheese mixture evenly over the top and bake until melted and golden brown and the squash is just tender, about 20 minutes.

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
