Parchment-wrapped potato parcels

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 ounces Lean cooked ham (thinly sliced)
⅔ pounds (2 medium) potatoes cut into 1/8-inch slices
1 small Zucchini cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 small Crookneck squash cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 small Red bell pepper cut into 1-inch squares
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dried basil
¼ teaspoon Red pepper flakes
\N \N Salt and pepper; to taste

Cut two 15-inch squares kitchen parchment. For each packet: Place half the ham on center of parchment square. Top ham with half the potato slices, overlapping, then top with half the remaining vegetables. Sprinkle with half the remaining ingredients. Fold two sides of the parchment over the ham and vegetables in letter fashion.

Grasp the two shorter open ends and pull up to meet. Fold down the open ends twice to seal. Repeat for second packet. Place in single layer in shallow microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH 7 minutes.

Rotate packets half turn; microwave on HIGH 7 more minutes. Let stand 3 minutes; open one packet and check to be sure potatoes are tender. If potatoes are not cooked through, rewrap and microwave on HIGH a little longer.

NOTE: Microwave cooking times are based on a 700-watt microwave.

Adjust cooking times to your own oven.
