Roman Zucchini

Recipe by Kim127

I'm starting to collect recipes for this year's hopefully huge garden bonanza. I found this recipe in The Creative Gardener's Cookbook. I can't wait for that bumper crop of squash!

Went on vacation for a week and when we left our zucchini were an inch or so away from harvesting size (8-10" in length and an inch or so in diameter). Came home and they are as long and as big around as my forearm!!! I stacked them up in DH's arms like cord wood then ran to Zaar to find recipes for these bertha's. This recipe was one of the first that I found and boy... what a find! I doubled the recipe (this was the main course) using both green and yellow zucchini and the results were fabulous! I also omitted the oil, used canned tomatoes instead of fresh and instead of mixing together the topping I just sprinkled each ingredient (minus the cream) over the zucc's. Holy taste buds Batman! My 7 year old ate 3 helpings- 3! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I'll be making this a lot this season.
