It's Summer Squash Season

Every summer I grow a small garden. Generally, there is an overwhelming abundance of Zucchini that, without fail, sends me into creative cooking overdrive.A person can only make so many loaves of Zucchini bread!

My dad used to say that the best way to get rid of extra zucchini is to place it in the front seat of an unsuspecting neighbor who happened to leave the car door unlocked. After all- who doesn't love a nice surprise? There's a lot to be said about finding a gift bag full zucchini in you passenger seat!

I've never actually gone as far as checking the neighborhood for unlocked vehicles, but I might be guilty of a random act of zucchini kindness here and there over the years. But, that was before I introduced this dish to our dinner table .

This recipe quickly became a family favorite at our house, and put an end to my "what to do with all that zucchini" conundrum. It can be served as a main dish (add cubed chicken if you'd like) or as a side. Either way, it is delicious!
