meatless friday redesign Our friends at Mary Help of Christians Academy in North Haledon, New Jersey, share recipes created in their Culinary Arts program on their blog, Our Daily Bread. This recipe is printed here with permission from MHCA Culinary Arts teacher Frank LaMendola. Zucchini is one of the easiest vegetables to grow, and certainly provides one of the most abundant harvests. A single "giant" zucchini can provide enough grated squash to bake a dozen or more loaves of bread. A large zucchini works well for grating and the smaller tender zucchini are perfect for slicing. But then you get to the point this time of year where you are asking the question " what can I make with all the zucchini?"
