  1. This looks delicious and it uses eight entire cups of chopped zucchini! Hallelujah! My boyfriend gets a CSA box and has been bringing giant zucchini to me lately. Now I’ll know just what to do with the next batch 🙂

      1. Thank you for the tip. The box usually includes some fresh basil and parsley. This is a great recipe to use up a lot of the box. If we don’t deal with the produce immediately, everything wilts and shrivels pretty quickly!
