Quick Stuffing and Sweet Potatoes

We have a ton of zucchini and squash in the garden so every meal we currently eat includes one or the other. So last night I decided to throw something together using all the stuff in the fridge including zucchini. I came up with a quick stuffing like mixture with baked sweet potatoes.

Sweet Potatoes
wash, peel, and cut 2-3 sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Toss potatoes with 4 tbs olive oil and bake in a 450 oven for 20 min. Sprinkle potatoes with nutmeg and salt. Let cool for 5 min then toss with 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese.

5 cups bread cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 carrots chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 zucchini chopped
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 to 1 cup veggie broth

Toast bread cubes in a 400 oven for 10 minutes.
In a large pot melt butter and saute the carrots, onion, and zucchini till tender. Add spices to veggie mixture.
Combine walnuts and bread cubes in a large bowl before adding them to the veggie mixture. Pour enough veggie broth to moisten the bread cubes. Cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Spoon stuffing mixture over sweet potatoes and serve warm.
