All of my family loves vegetables, and in the summer when squash is plentiful, I serve this dish frequently. It is truly my husband's favorite and can serve as a complete dinner for him.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 medium yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Drain tomatoes, reserving 1/4 cup juice; set aside. In a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, layer the zucchini, onion and rice; dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Top with squash and tomatoes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic salt, pepper and reserved juice; pour over tomatoes. Dot with remaining butter.
  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until rice is tender. Uncover; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve with a slotted spoon.
