Zucchini Makes Me Happy!!!!

In my house we love zucchini and eat pretty much all year long, especially in the summer when we can get it from our local farm market or garden (when the ground hogs have not taken over).  I have taken great pleasure in coming up with fun ways to make it.  It is such a versatile ingredient.  This is fabulously delicious recipe.  Enjoy!!   Zucchini Bake (serves 6)...more
