This delicious side dish has morphed over the last few times I've made it... trial and error play a big part in creating dishes.... at least, when I'm creating dishes. But I believe this one has finally become what just might be something close to perfection. Well close... anyway.
One of the beautiful things about zucchini is the range of sizes they come in... the ones I chose for this recipe were roughly 4-5 inches in length... with the intention of using them as a compliment to an entrée. *But, as you will see in the recipe... with a few modifications, they can be used as a main dish. Just go to your local Farmer's Market and grab a few of the big daddies... they can grow to be a full foot long and 2-3 inches in diameter.
