Zucchini & Tomato Bake

Happy Sunday All! I hope everyone is staying warm in this god awful weather. It’s freezing here in Calgary today! It’s a great day to have the oven on and to be in the kitchen whipping up Meal prep for this week ahead.

A few friends of mine, have been after me for this quick and easy side dish I make all year long! I can do this on the grill in the Summer as well, but it is perfect for a cold day like today to turn the oven on and have this with dinner!

This recipe is vegetarian-friendly and fairly healthy. The cheese could be cut back if you really wanted to make it super healthy.
