Zucchini Italiani

I'm so excited! No one has given me zucchini in over a week. Don't worry, I still have plenty. This is from the only "healthy" cook book I own, <em>Serving You Well</em> Everything in this book is wonderful. Check out the calorie on this baby!

Did I mention you can use yellow summer squash instead or zucchini, or a combination of the two.
