Garlic is a popular thing in this household. It pretty much goes in anything. Except ice cream. We have a whole bunch of heads of garlic, 2 huge jars of minced garlic in the frig, (2 jars?), garlic powder, garlic salt, garlic pepper and fresh grated garlic salt. We even bought garlic Jelly Belly jelly beans once in Wisconsin at the Jelly Belly factory. They weren't good, don't try them.
So with a couple of needing-to-be-used zucchini in the frig and loads upon loads of garlic on hand, this seemed the perfect side dish for tonights meal.
These are seriously garlicky. While incredibly delicious, this is not a good date night meal. That would be a mistake. I would have liked to use parmesan cheese but we only had mozzerella cheese so that worked to get in my cheese fix for the evening.
