Using your bounty
WARNING – this is another of several zucchini recipes you’ll be seeing. I’m one of “those” people who has been bombarded. And I’m not complaining 🙂
These little treasures are perfect as an appetizer or side dish (especially with some tzatziki
, and/or hot sauce). They’re easy to make, a great way to use up your squash surplus, and best of all…delicious.
Once again, Mario Batali rocks.
