a zucchini one-dish meal

                                                   look comes the zucchini!

 it is zucchini season and i picked an arm load this morning! i planted a row of them because my family is here and everyone loves them. for years i have sliced them and sauteed them in a bit of olive oil with onion and garlic as a side dish. it is still an easy way to serve zucchini but i wanted to make it a one dish meal but we will get to that in a minute.

the happiest plants i have ever grown!those tomato stakes are 6 feet

our share of today's harvest
yesterday i cooked italian sausage from a butcher shop in auburn called indelicato's. it is the best. i sliced 2 of the cooked links, added 1 vidalia onion sliced thin. put both ingredients in my skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil. i cooked them over medium heat until the onion was soft.

 then i fired up the heat and added the sliced zucchini. keep turning until the zucchini is cooked to your liking. the higher heat will keep it from getting watery and allow it to brown slightly. when it is done cooking, season to taste. only then add salt  and freshly ground pepper.

1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
add the cup of shredded cheese and it is ready to serve. the cheese will melt by the time you have finished the blessing.
                                     served with zucchini corn bread that i made a few days ago

                                                                             ENJOY  !
