Sautéed Vegetables with Fresh Mozzarella

This is a side dish that is a big hit here in the summer ~ thanks to good fresh veggies!

Included in the dish are some of the best vegetables that summer has to offer:  fresh juicy tomatoes, woodsy-tasting mushrooms, sweet onions, mild zucchini, and colorful bell peppers. 

All sautéed into deliciousness with seasonings and served with chunks of slightly melted mozzarella cheese.  Mozzarella is perfect with tomatoes and other vegetables, tallying in at 70 calories and 5 grams of fat per ounce ~ tasty and diet-friendly!

We really enjoy this ~ summertime goodness!  I hope you do too!

Sautéed Vegetables with Fresh Mozzarella


2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and seasoned pepper, to taste

1 teaspoon dried basil leaves

1 pound fresh whole mushrooms, cut into chunks

1 large Vidalia onion, cut into thick wedges

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 each, small red, yellow, and green bell peppers, sliced

1 medium zucchini, cut into bite-size chunks

1 large tomato, cut into wedges

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced ¼” thick and cut into quarters.


Pour oil into medium-hot nonstick skillet.

Add mushrooms, cook until they begin to release their juice, about 5 minutes.

Stir in onions and garlic cook for 1 minute.

Add peppers and toss.

Add zucchini and tomatoes, sauté until crisp-tender.

Stir in seasonings.

Add fresh mozzarella to hot vegetable mixture.

Toss together so that the mozzarella begins to melt.

Transfer to a serving dish.




  1. Dear Pam, This is a beautiful dish. Healthy and figure friendly and delicious a great trio.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  2. I could make a dinner of this and a piece of cornbread.

  3. Pam, My wife would like this dish but for me we'd have to limit it to the zucchini, tomatoes and cheese. Those other veggies are off my list of things I like to eat. However...happy wife, happy life! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. I so enjoy all of the fresh goodness of Summer. Great ingredients and so healthy too....Can't beat it!!

  5. This would be a big hit here! In fact, I do something similar with zucchini, yellow squash, sliced onions, sliced tomatoes, and mozzarella all over the top!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
