ultimate recipe swap ~ garden vegetable pilaf

This weeks Ultimate Recipe Swap @LifeAsMom is all about zucchini. If you have a vegetable garden than you know it's the one plant that's pretty abundant no matter what the conditions are.
Have water?
Then the zucchini will grow and grow and grow...

This year has been a scorcher for us. The garden has been pretty dry and that's with twice a day watering. You would think that the zucchini would be small and shriveled. Not so my friends, not so. These green machines are plentiful once more and I have been trying to find new recipes to go with the pile that's in my fridge at the moment. I came up with this one last week. It's simple and quite yummy. 

Head on over to LifeAsMom for more zucchini inspiration.
