This is another way I like to prepare the zucchini that is so plentiful now. Yellow squash, or a combination of both, can also be used.

This is delicious. I used some homemade pesto I had on hand making the recipe extremely quick and easy to put together. I think it took 15 minutes, start to finish. This is a natural combination that's a real summertime keeper.
