ZUCCHINI

Zucchini Pancakes
            Versions of this recipe have been suggested by two members. Michael and I ate a doubled recipe ourselves one night with a couple strips of bacon on the side. It’s a good choice for people who want low fat or who don’t like the texture of summer squash. The zucchini becomes nearly unrecognizable. Thanks to Barbara DeSousa and Mary Levin.

            colander about 20 min.
