I am popping in today to give you a quick and fun recipe. I saw this in Cooking Light this month and immediately knew I wanted to give it a go. I am always trying to find ways for Miss O to eat more veggies. She actually really likes them. Steamed broccoli is a favorite as is sauted green beans. But those can get boring for the adult people in her life. She is hit or miss with zucchini.
This recipe is for any squash but we used zucchini. Simply slice and top with cheese and bread crumbs. Squash Nachos. Get it...squachos. I thought it was super cute. Mr. J not so much.
Miss O wasn't as thrilled as I had hoped. She ate one. I ate the rest and loved every last one.
