This time of year people who are growing zucchini need ideas for using it! And even though my little garden only has one zucchini plant and one yellow summer squash plant, I’m definitely getting an abundance of summer squash. That’s what my mother used to call “a good problem to have,” but it’s still a challenge to stay ahead of the zucchini coming from the garden.
So in this time of zucchini abundance for many people, I’m featuring Cheesy Zucchini with Garlic and Parsley for Friday Favorites to remind you about this recipe that’s a quick and easy way to cook zucchini. And if you’re a fan of my mega-popular Low-Carb Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake you’ll probably enjoy this one that’s similar but with slightly different flavors and made on the stove!

If you like garlic and cheesy zucchini, this is a simple side dish that you’ll be so happy to have in your zucchini recipe collection! Please try it and come back and tell me how you liked it!
