End of the Summer Garden Skillet
Having odds and ends items left over from other recipe really is not a bad thing. As for the case with recipe. I have random left over items. Quick trip to the store for some protein and crushed tomatoes…and boom this recipe was born. I love quick and easy skillet meals that I can also toss in the freezer and pull out for quick lunches later in the week or month. The meld and blend of everything is just what was needed after a long days hustle. This is perfect transition meal from summer into fall.
