Great Grated Zucchini

Serves 4 to 6


Grating gives a new taste and a different texture to zucchini. Baked in the oven and mixed with sour cream this innovative dish is crisp and appealing.


2 large zucchini (about 1-1/4 pounds combined weight),
   unpeeled, grated, and blotted dry with a paper towel
1-1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
1/4 to 1/3 cup light sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for topping


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place grated zucchini in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray or oil. Dot with butter.

Bake uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake until zucchini is tender-crisp and cheese melts, about 10 minutes longer.
