Monday's Bolognese

Here is the first in a regular series that I hope to feature called "Monday brought to you by Sunday." That's where the previous night's dinner informs a new meal. Martha is famous for this device, and here is how she reinvents the previous night's Bolognese sauce:

Preheat oven to 425°.

In a large pot, fry ~3 zucchini cut legthwise and quartered in 1 tbsp olive oil for 5 min.

Add last night's sauce to the pot and combine.

Make biscuit topping. (Note: This is as close as I come to baking.) To do this whisk together 1 cup flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp thyme and 1/2 tsp salt. Add 3 tbsp cold butter cut into small pieces. Combine with fingers (or pastry fork) until tiny pieces of butter are distributed throughout. Add 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup grated parmesan and stir to form dough.

Pour sauce into a large casserole dish and top with dollops of biscuit mix.

Bake for 25 min.
