Tomatoes and yellow summer squash are in abundance in my garden right now. This recipe makes great use of them!

  • 2 c. chopped red onion
  • 1-½ c. chopped red bell pepper
  • 3-½ c. sliced yellow summer squash

  • ½ c. brown Minute Rice, cooked
  • ¼ c. chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • ¾ tsp. salt, divided

  • ½ c. ( 2 % ) milk
  • ¾ c. shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-½ oz. bread, torn
  • 1 ( 12 oz) beefsteak tomato, sliced

Preheat oven to 375 and spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a large nonstick skillet coated with spray, heat 2 tsp. oil. Add onions and cook for 3 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook another 3 minutes. Add yellow squash and garlic and cook for 4 minutes. Place vegetable mixture in a large bowl. Stir in cooked brown rice, basil, thyme, ½ tsp. salt and pepper.
