Baked Italian Zucchini Nibblers

Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day! As I mentioned, it was the first year that I got to have my daughter with me and it was so nice. Kenny cooked up my omelet and then topped it off with a steak on the grill,,,,,,,,,,,Yum!

Now let me share this delicious recipe with you. I’m sure most of you out there would call this a frittata but I just prefer to call em as I see em! I found this recipe in one of my old cookbooks (probably before the word frittata even existed, ha ha) and with some alterations to the original recipe, they came out pretty damn good, even if I say so my own Selph?  That was just a little pun on our last name and my computer is telling me I need to do a spell check, as if I didn’t know how to spell my last name, really now……….. Even my daughter thought they were pretty tasty. We had them with some of my homemade spaghetti sauce and I think the next time, I will just make a basic pizza sauce for our dipping pleasure! So with that, here we go:

Pasta For The Summer Heat

Pick-a-Nick Salad for sure!

Pick-a-Nick Salad for sure!

Well, I sure hope everyone had a great 4th of July as we did here! Kenny did two different kinds of beer can chickens on the grill along with fresh corn on the cob. I on the other hand, took care of corn bread, deviled eggs that I tried to make red white and blue and came out like Christmas eggs instead, you know red, green and white, and then this  pasta salad that we tried for the first time since we tasted it in our local Publix Supermarket and WOW!

Everyone had a great day!

Everyone had a great day! No…that’s not a fire in the fireplace…Gotcha ya!

Now I do have to say that their version came out a little better than mine, maybe due to my adding the asiago cheese in place of some of the mozzarella, however, everyone had seconds except for our granddaughter who is a little on the picky side, you know teens these days! Oh well, she’ll grow out of that someday just like I did…. What little was left, my daughter took home for a meal the next day so mom and dad wouldn’t have too many left overs in the frig, ha ha! I also used the tri-colored rotini in lieu of the plain pasta. So with that, I give you a super summer salad that really goes great on a hot summer day with just about anything………..
