    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    Summer is upon us. (Maybe, I did see a ton of sweater and coat comments in my FB feed last night from my friends.) One of the things that I love about summer is the fresh produce, farmer's market and being able to get great prices of fruits and veggies throughout the summer. One veggie in particular is usually easy to find a super low prices...zucchini. Zucchini is super easy to grow, and is often in abundance, hence the low prices. I once visited a farmer's market in NYC, 2 years ago I think, and the stack of zucchini was priced at $0.99/lb. That's CHEAP for NYC prices, and it wouldn't be unusual to find it as low as $0.49/lb. in other parts of the country. If I had to "pick a price", I wouldn't pay more than $0.79/lb. for zucchini in the summer...and stock up when you see it any lower than that. Zucchini is an easy veggie to stock up on because you can shred it and freeze it. It's perfect for baking bread, and also for using in these meatballs! (Especially if you have to sneak in the veggies to your kiddos' diets!)

Then top each meatball with a little pasta sauce.
