I think my sister-in-law and I have this conversation every summer: “Lisa, I can’t think of anything to do with zucchini and I have all this zucchini!” She always comes through and boy does she have a great memory for dishes I made eons ago!
This year’s conversation reminded me of a dish that I had read about online. I can’t find the exact site and I didn’t record it in my recipe notes, but I’ll give you the gist of what the original person came up with:
Zucchini Side Dish
Salt and Pepper to taste
Saute the vegetables as you would normally saute them and season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Freeze when cool.
Feeling lazy, I eliminated the mushroom and Italian seasoning for the first two batches. The next batch will have the seasoning. Even just a bit of basil would add some flavor.
Not only can this dish serve as a side, it can also turn into a meatless main dish by adding pasta and/or white beans. Maybe some dried tomato?
