Did you know that today is National Zucchini Day? This is not to be confused with National Zucchini Bread Day which is in April. Who comes up with this stuff?
From what I can tell, National Zucchini Day was developed for all those gardeners with green thumbs to allow them to get rid of their abundance by encouraging them to place unwanted zucchini on their neighbors porch.
So, if you are fortunate to have a giving neighbor (or want to celebrate this quirky holiday) why not make a batch of Summer Pasta for dinner? This is one of my favorite dishes to make when I’m in a hurry to put dinner on the table. Dinner can be ready in the time it take to cook a batch of spaghetti noodles. Personally, I prefer my zucchini to have some bite left in it and not mushy. This is the perfect answer. (Click here for the recipe)
