Default A good use for zucchini

I found this amazing recipe for the zucchini that is now just coming in my garden. I hope you enjoy as much as we did and, since I didn't have any cilantro I just left it out.

Skillet Zucchini and Corn

2 tbl. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 zucchinis, diced
1/2 cut chopped onion
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 tbl. lime juice
1 tbl. chopped fresh cilantro

1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat oil. Add garlic, zucchini, and onion to the skillet and cook for 6-7 min. or until soft, stirring occasionally

2. Add corn, basil thyme, and pepper. Cook for 5 min. stirring occasionally, or until heated through. Stir in lime juice and cilantro

3. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve
2 tbl. grated Parmesan cheese

I usually grate it up and freeze it for later use in zucchini bread.

Tale the large zucchinis and cur them lengthwise in half. Scoop our the seesy part and then cur them in slices crosswise. Use a good applepie recipe and make pies. They are really good!
