He's growing so fast...
6 months old,
pulling himself up
 and then sitting down...
using a walker already!

My great grandson...

I love him with all my heart!

Roasted Zucchini Casserole...

I'm always looking for new recipes.  
This recipe was passed around on Facebook,  
looked good,  so I decided to try it.  
It was delicious!
So I thought I would share it with you.

The recipe is as follows...

3 zucchinis,  sliced
2 onions,  sliced

1  16 oz package penne pasta (I used rotini)

1/2 C grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Toss zucchinis and onions in large bowl
with olive oil til evenly coated.
Spread into large baking dish.
Roast in oven about 30 min til golden.
Season with Salt & Pepper.

Reduce oven temp to 350 degrees F.

Cook pasta in large pot according to pkg  directions.  Drain.
Lightly grease 9 x 13 baking dish.
Heat marinara sauce in saucepan til hot.
Spread into prepared dish,  followed by penne
and then zucchini-onion mixture.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
Bake in preheated oven til sauce is bubbly 35-40 min.

Enjoy!  I hope you like this as much as we did!
