The end of summer has given birth to some gigantic zucchinis, which have sparked my creativity in the kitchen. I shredded the big-ole veggies in the food processor, used some in waffles, breads, muffins, and cakes and STILL had some left over. I decided to throw some shredded zucchini in a baking dish, add a jar of organic spaghetti sauce, some cooked black beans, carrots, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, pepper, nutritional yeast, and a little ground flax and bake the sucker for about an hour at 350 degrees. The result was amazing. The kids ate it like spaghetti and we all had seconds. Enjoy!
