Keeping It Fresh

Brace yourselves, folks: it’s zucchini time, and as tasty as these little summer squashes can be, it’s not carefully guarded secret that they’re just too darn prolific. How many of us have been the recipients of an anonymously abandoned box of the things on our porches? Before you start despairing of how to use them all before they go by, however, you should really stop to take joy in their simple flavors while they’re as fresh as they get, and the best way to do that is to pair them with some equally fresh flavors. The Kitchn’s recipe for Zucchini Boats with Mozzarella and Olives does just that, and we’ve tweaked it just a tad to make sure you can prepare it with the confidence of serving up Guiding Stars to your family.
