Zucchini is one one my favorites, and I’m always looking for new ways to include this terrific vegetable in our meals.  If often takes a back seat–as a side dish–but this recipe puts it front and center.  Light and delicious, you’ll love it for a simple, healthy, and delicious meal.  This is a great recipe for those who are cutting back on pasta, but long for a quick Italian fix.  And I do mean quick!
