Hey, YOU! Happy Sunday!! How was Church? Synagogue? Temple? The couch??

My Sunday plans include sleeping-in and going to dinner with my besties. Can’t WAIT! Not sure what I’m going to do with my time in between, but it will most likely involve zucchini and tomatoes.

Haven’t you heard?? My parents’ vegetable garden went buck wild and my ‘rents think that all those veggies “will be good for MY blog!”.
I’ve got tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini just chillin’ on every counter that you can find in this kitchen of mine.

Also? I peeled one of them cucumbers to make a Simple Cucumber Salad, but I totally forgot about it, so when I finally remembered, I went back and the poor cucumber was fighting an attack by the veg-fruit-flies. I had to pitch it – it kinda grossed me out. Gah!

So are we cool with having zucchini reappear on zee bloggy only 7 days after our last zucchini-recipe?? (I’m inserting YOUR “heck YES!”-comment right here) Thank goodness you agree!! By the way, those Zucchini Fritters are BE.YOND!!

But, look at this. Zucchini in cheese. It’s like putting vegetables in cheese. That’s, like, a win-win situation. It’s like that one time that I spread Nutella all over my WHOLE WHEAT tortillas. You see what I did there? It’s called balance.

See, I also have this thing with pasta. No. It’s my husband that has this *thing* with pasta. The man could live on spaghetti, alone. And jaaaaaaars of tomato sauce. And, if you’ve been following me long enough, you know that we, the people at Diethood HQ, eat something-pasta thrice a week. Stuffed ShellsCheesy Chicken Pasta Bake and Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna (<—-that stuff is INCREDIBLE!) make their appearance more often than any other.

No lie, though – these Lasagna Rolls are going to reappear like every week until I run out of my zucchini-stash. Holy Mother, they were so good! I made them once, just to test them out, and I literally could not wait to make them again. Two days later, I whipped them up again, took a picture and inhaled ‘em. Again. I was one happy clam.

I need to tell you. I think my ricotta-cream cheese mixture is da bomb. I don’t like lasagna that is made with just ricotta. It’s not creamy enough and it’s missing an extra umph, you know?
I’m also a veggie-lasagna lover. I can definitely hang with veggies so long as they are accompanied with lots o’ cheese. Noodles in between all of that is BONUS!

I could live off this. For reals.

    I can always do zucchini when it’s smothered in cheese! :) (Nutella over whole wheat tortillas = balance <— YES!!)

    Oh boy, this looks amazing! I love the shredded zucchini – a nice tricky way to sneak in some extra veggies to the picky eaters. ; )

    I’m alll for taking free veggies off the hands of my parents!! And that’s awesome you have parents near by to get stocked up on veggies from!! So sweet. And that lasagna is too gorgeous for words!

    Omg these look SO good. I am waiting for my parents to come visit us and give us their extra garden veggies too. I love zucchini and my daughter is so picky so I sneak it in pasta sauce all the time, since I think she has some Italian trait somewhere and only eats pasta,pizza,nutella,etc, you get the hint.

    And I lasagna takes forever to layer prepare,etc, but these look so easy and simple! Will give it a try!

      Oh, she’s also on the Italian food diet?!? My kids are, too!! :-) Pizza, especially! I can’t drive past Little Caesars without them screaaaaming for me to stop and get pizza. :-D

    There can never be enough zucchini! Keep it coming. Even though I hate it for you, I’m so glad to hear that I’m not the only one that has to battle those darn fruit flies. I love summer produce, but it’s impossible to have the bounty without the bugs.

    You lasanga rolls …. phenomenal.

    Cucumber, tomatoes and zucchini .. a trifecta of veggies that I’m not fond of. The lasagna rolls are quite pretty though and I’m willing to overlook the zucchini inside.
