Inspired by fresh local ingredients in season at the Covington Farmer’s Market
Try fresh zucchinis, tomatoes, peppers and home-made red sauce from the Covington Farmer’s Market for this great seasonal recipe!
2 cloves of garlic, pealed
1 jar Abundant Life Kitchen red sauce
1 pint small tomatoes, halved
2 sweet peppers, chopped
¼ cup fresh basil
2 – 4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Pasta of your choice, prepared
Fresh grated parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a large pan and both sides of zucchini slices with olive oil. Place zucchini slices and whole garlic cloves in the pan. Bake for 15 minutes and then flip the slices in the pan – stir around the garlic, too. Bake for another 15 – 20 minutes, or until the zucchini starts to turn golden brown.
Meanwhile, heat the red sauce in a medium sized pot. Add the halved tomatoes and chopped sweet peppers. You can add some crushed red pepper flakes for a spicier sauce (optional). Once the sauce is almost to a boil, add the chopped fresh basil (save a few sprigs for garnish).
Serve the zucchini over the red sauce and pasta, topped with fresh grated parmesan and a basil sprig. Enjoy!
