I’m not going to let the back-to-school vibe in my house get in the way of my seasonal cooking. It may be all about the make-ahead breakfasts, packed lunches, and quick weeknight dinners, but fall cooking can wait. There is so much left of summer to taste!
Fish with Summer Vegetables is pretty much summer on a plate. Fresh zucchini, ripe tomatoes, and corn are the standout stars of this addictive but simple sauce. This colorful dish is totally delicious, healthy, and full of seasonal flavor. This dinner is on repeat around here all summer long.
I serve this with orzo or rice.
