Holy Crap, a recipe!

I know, I know, it's been a while, so here's a tried-and-true one I stole from Caltech Mom...

CaltechMom's Super Duper Zucchini

6-8 thin Zucchini (or Italian Squash, if you prefer, the long, green ones. Thinner squash are more tender), ends removed, sliced lengthwise (yes, long skinny pieces)
Olive Oil for frying
1 can plain tomato sauce (the 4-6 oz can)
Shredded Cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 deg. F
2. Rinse and trim squash and slice lengthwise into thin strips.
3. Fry strips in olive oil and place on paper towels to drain
4. Layer squash strips in the bottom of a medium baking dish (should give 3-4 layers, depending on the size of the dish)
5. When all strips are placed in the dish, pour tomato sauce over the top, top with shredded cheese
6. Put baking dish in oven for 30 minutes
Serves 2-3 as a main dish, 4-6 as a side.
