Italian-Style Zucchini

I have about a dozen zucchini a friend gave me from his garden.

I love zucchini, usually cooking it simply in a little olive oil or roasting it with other veggies in the oven.

Today I was craving Italian food.

With this dish I decided to start with a little ground pork and it evolved into this Italian delicacy.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Brown ground pork in a little olive oil then add onion and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Next add zucchini. Cover the pot and cook until tender (10-15 minutes). Season with more salt and pepper.

Stir in Italian bread crumbs and Romano cheese.

Yep, it’s delicious.
