That was “The Game”, not “The Games”, in case you misunderstood.
You know The Game, don’t you?
The one where you try to use up all the zucchini you have, preferably finding as many varied recipes as possible so that your family doesn’t have to eat plain old boiled zucchini every single night.
And you don’t have to waste any precious zucchini.
Prior to this year, I was really just a spectator in this game. I’d laugh politely when the topic rolled around to this, pretending I knew what I was talking about. But now that we have joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) farm, we have an abundance of vegetables. Including zucchini.
So in the interest of helping out my fellow players, here is one of my favorite zucchini recipes:
4-5 cups zucchini, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 tsp. salt
2 T butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup crushed ritz crackers
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
Parboil squash for about 5 minutes (you can also use yellow squash instead of or in addition to the zucchini). Place into a buttered casserole dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add onion. Sprinkle the crushed crackers over the top, and then sprinkle the cheese. Dot with butter. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
So yummy. Enjoy!
