I have not run across a recipe for zucchini with these ingredients. It is a little different, I think everyone would like this "just a little different flavored recipe." When I can get my hands on extra zucchini, I grate or julianne the squash, and freeze, spread out on cookie sheet. After they are frozen, I just scrape them up into what I think are serving sizes and place into ziplock freezer bag and freeze for use later in year. This way they dont lump together in one big lump and you can measure out what is needed. (Im sure everyone already knew this.) Anyway, a favorite recipe.
