This past week at the pantry we were blessed with 100 boxes of zucchini.  Yes, friends, I said ONE HUNDRED.

That’s a lot of zucchini.

The question, for all of us, quickly became: “what do you do with zucchini?”  The answer, of course, add cheese! Take a good hard look at those delicious zucchinis and tell me you aren’t ready to dig in. I found a super easy recipe for baked parmesan zucchini for you to try this week at home. Delicious. Nutritious. Cheesy. It’s WIN, WIN, WIN!
