I asked my husband if there was anything he wanted me to post. He said the zucchini dish I make mostly during the summer because we have fresh zucchini. I cook mostly by sight and taste, so recipes are not always written down. But this is pretty easy.

What a neat way to reinvent a fresh zucchini side dish. The squash cooks down with onions which gives the dish a ton of flavor. When the sour cream is added it adds a subtle sweetness to the creamy sauce. Adding a corn starch slurry thickens up the sauce a lot. If you want something thinner, we suggest leaving that out. When zucchini is in season, it's a refreshing way to serve it.
