Gotta love recipes that don't require a trip to town, just a few steps outside!  I made it last night and it is definitely worth making again!  I love zucchini and it was really light, but very flavorful, too!  Come and get zucchini if you don't have any!:)

2 medium zucchini, sliced
olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
zest of 1/2 of a lemon
1 1/2 tsp butter
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
6 oz spaghetti
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 450.  Place zucchini on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast 10-15 minutes, stirring once.
2. Saute onions over medium heat for 5 minutes.  Add garlic and stir in zucchini and lemon.
3. Melt butter and stir in bread crumbs until lightly browned.  Add mint. 
4. Cook pasta 9 minutes, reserve 1/4 cup water.  Add olives.  Bring to a boil.  Sprinkle with cheese and dive in.


  1. I am a zucchini growing failure! Really! I will take some if you have extra. My girls love it lightly breaded and then pan fried. I look foward to making your recipe!

  2. I'm so gonna try this! I LOVED the sounds of the mint & lemon in it!
    I will have to sneak to the neighbors yard to get my supply of mint ;)

    We grilled some 'Z' the other night and oh man, was it good- just doesn't get much better than this, ugh?

    Thanks for Sharing!!
    Love you,

  3. Makes me want to make zucchini bread.. yumm! Just saw this recipe and though of you, enjoy all that good stuff for the rest of us! I might just have to pick some up at the store, these cupcakes look insane!
