Baked Shredded Carrots And Zucchini

Heart Friendly too!!

Heart Friendly too!!

With way, way too many trips to doctors this week, not much cooking was done but I did manage to get this one in. I was dying to try my belated Christmas gift from Granddaughter who got me one of those Veggetti gadgets. You know how hooked I am on trying all those things they advertise on the boob tube and I find that some of them are great and others, well you know! I did find that this little gizmo was not very fond of carrots at all and for this recipe, I had to resort to my old grater instead, but the zucchini did come out beautiful just like the ad claims with one little snag. When the zucchini got down past the top of the Veggetti it left a stub that I had to shred by hand, no big deal as I had my old grater already out………

Steamed Cole Slaw Au Gratin

This might not be what your thinking it is! I had some cabbage that I needed to use up and I have seen many recipe for casseroles that include cabbage and cheese and I didn’t want to turn on the oven as it was so gosh darn hot. So I took the veggies that I would use to make cole slaw, steamed them off and mixed them with a cheesy white sauce and we loved it! It’s a no-brainer recipe that is so simple but very tasty and you can mix and match other vegetables to your liking. The same goes for the cheese, as you can use any cheese that tickles your fancy but we really enjoyed the taste of the Swiss with the cabbage!

Tasty and easy! What more could you want?

A funny little story about the cheese sauce. Before I added the veggies, husband came into the kitchen and stuck his finger in the sauce that had cooled of a little so it had thickened up quite a bit, and he said, good mashed potatoes! I burst into laughter as I told him he was cut off for the rest of the night and then proceeded to tell him that it was cheese sauce NOT mashed potatoes. Must have been one of those senior moments I guess!!!!!
