FAMILY FEATURES Baked Ziti with Pumpkin & Sausage




E ven though the cooler weather has arrived, you can* still enjoy mouthwatering peaches, juicy tomatoes and sweet com all your summer favorites thanks to the can. Fruits and vegetables are picked at the peak of their ripeness, when they're at their best, and canned just hours after picking. The canning process,' therefore, locks in their nutrients, freshness and flavor naturally, without the need for preservatives. So, they're available mid in-season all IMPyearlong.
Additionally, many canned fruits and vegetables have equal or more nutrients than their fresh and frozen counterparts. Canned peaches, for example are more nutritious than fresh, according to an Oregon State University study, because they have higher levels of vitamins A, C and E, as well as folate mid antioxidants., These delicious recipes will allow you to enjoy the flavors of summer, no matter what
time of the year it is. Remember, your favorite fruits and vegetables are only a can away. 4For more recipe inspiration and to learn how you can get cooking with cans, visit: www.Facebook.com/CansGetYoiiCooking www.Pinterest.com/CansGetUCooking*
