Zucchini (Apple) Pie

This has become a family favorite. My son, who did not care for zucchini, upon taking his first bite, complimented me on the "great apple pie." Even after he discovered it was zucchini rather than apple, he loved it, and years later he still does.

cinnamon

First, cut the zucchini lengthwise, peel and scoop out seeds, and slice like apple slices. Measure then cook till tender-crisp in a tiny bit of water then drain.
