I've made a version of this for years, so I knew I'd love it. I'd never sauteed the onions and garlic beforehand....I just dumped it all in a saucepan and let in cook! But this way really intensified the garlic flavor, and kept the zucchini from getting too mushy. I love it! Can't wait till this summer when I can pick the ingredients from my back yard. Thanks for sharing!
