Grilled Zucchini with Parmesan

4th Generation of Cousins

The 4th Generation of Cousins

I cannot believe it is almost August. Summer is going way. too. fast. We just got back from a week-long road trip to Ohio for a family reunion that we have every three years. We had a blast. There were over 70 of us there, spanning four generations, and we enjoyed lots of laughter and catching up, and, of course, food and drink. Let’s just say our family knows how to to have fun! But after all that fun, it’s time to lighten things up on the menu at home. And this Grilled Zucchini with Parmesan is the perfect way to do that

Everyone’s garden is bursting with zucchini, and I love grilling mine. It still keeps a crisp bite (I’m not a fan of mushy zucchini), and is finished with a light sprinkle of parmesan and fresh oregano. Simplicity at its best. When you start with great ingredients, you don’t need to do a lot to them – just let the flavors shine through.
