This hearty casserole is very filling and uses your summer vegetables. Just get out your skillet and you have a one dish meal just minutes away.

Very nice and easy. All this requires is a bit of chopping, and then it can be left to cook. I feel like it was still a bit liquidy, and may use less chicken stock next time--but the taste was still great!

This combination was great. My DH declared it, "some kinda good!" I used this recipe to use up some leftovers - I had some cooked rice, cooked chicken, some already chopped tomatoes and some cooked broccoli (which I substituted for the zucchini). Since the rice and chicken were already cooked I only needed about half the amount of chicken stock and it was all ready in just a few minutes. I added a little basil and was expecting that it might need something more, but it was lovely just as it was. Thanks for posting!
