Cheesy zucchini....FAIL!

I've been on a quest lately to get more veggies in our diet.  I do great with fruit, I probably eat 1-2 pieces of fruit a day.  But veggies are a little harder.  Sure I can just heat up some frozen corn or green beans, but I'm looking for something more.  So, I decided to try a cheesy zucchini recipe from my fav cookbook.

This is one big zucchini! 


It looked so nice after being cut up and weighed.


Even the piggies liked the ends and the peels.  You should have heard that little babies squeal!



And what couldn't turn out right with this much cheese...right?


Looking good!



I had high hopes and they were dashed when I bit into one.  Too much garlic, the zucchini was too soft and the cheese did nothing for the zucchini.  The flavors just didn't meld together at all.  I was very disappointed and actually only ate a couple bites.  Oh well, you win some...you lose some!  Maybe I need to find a vegetarian cookbook for some good side dishes...

Lots of people overcook zucchini. You only stir-fry it, like 5-7 minutes or so, and it's not mushy or tasteless that way. Also, use smaller zucs. Try it again -- you'll like it.

I got a vegetarian cookbook from Thomas for my birthday! I'll have to send you some of the good recipes once I try some of them.

@ Whiffletree Farm. I kinda figured I overcooked it. It was way too mushy. I will have to try it again, thanks!
