Zucchini is one of those vegetables that doesn't enter our kitchen often. It is a healthy food choice and so it should be a regular item on our family menu. I just had not given much thought on how to prepare this vegetable into a dish that my whole family could enjoy.
With the help of my hubby we came up with the following recipe.
This is a quick and easy recipe. It is a healthy food choice. Ingredients are natural and inexpensive. This does not take up much time to make and clean up is a breeze.
The best part! Everyone loves it! I am happy to say that we will be welcoming zucchini in our home more than ever before!
