Another Feature and Hidden Veggies

November is finally upon us!  I'm am so happy that it's been chilly at night here (for Florida anyway).

Mary's Breakfast Sammies have been Featured over At Battling the Home Front: In the Kitchen Thursday.  Hop on over and check out the links.  Link up if you wish!

On to the food!  When I was visiting my family we had a quick/last minute dinner at my sister's house.  She has three little ones and is amazing at hiding veggies!  She made spaghetti and added tiny chopped zucchini to the sauce.  It was fantastic!!!  Over the last three weeks I've added zucchini to several pasta dishes and we really like it.

This isn't like my normal recipes.  You'll have to decide how much of each works for you.  I didn't measure anything! My sister chopped her zucchini smaller but I wasn't trying to hide it.

Pasta with Zucchini

*I use 1 whole one for 2 people*
Grapeseed oil
Chopped garlic, optional
Cheese, optional

Chop zucchini (and garlic)and saute in a pan with grapeseed oil.  In the meantime, boil water and cook pasta.

Add sauce to sauteed zucchini and warm.  Pour over cooked pasta.
