    Kitchen Witch Steph's Note:

    I believe the "disappearing" part of the title refers largely to making the garden's over abundance of squash disappear. I know there will be those larger zucchinis that slip past my radar so I can't wait to try this one. The recipe is from the Kingsolver book 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' and is typed here as written. I will come back and hard line some of the amounts and with any tweakings I may have done.

      I love this recipe sooo much that I am adding it to the catering cart for a wedding this weekend! I especially enjoy it the next day when the flavors have a chance to blend. Hot or cold it does not matter to me though the family prefers it warm.
