Other ideas for using up all that zucchini

The recipe that I will share here is one I developed years ago and is modeled after a dish that was served at Trinity restaurant in Harrision, NY when I worked there.

Zucchini over Pasta

2 cups cubed zucchini
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste (if you like it, be generous on the black pepper - it makes the dish)
Pinch of crushed red pepper

1 package powdered cream sauce (I like to use packaged alfredo sauce or "Parma Rosa" by Knorr)

Heat olive oil in saute pan and caramelize onion. Add zucchini and saute until soft. In separate pan, follow package directions for sauce mix. Add sauce to zucchini mixture. Serve over your favorite pasta such as bowties, penne or spaghetti and top with generous amounts of your favorite grated cheese - pecorino romano or parmesan.
