Yellow Zucchini Recipes

This evening I discovered a ginormous yellow zucchini in the backyard. Since I’m still following Weight Watchers, I thought, “Cool… free Points!” since zucchini has a W.W. Points value of 0. I don’t normally wing it in the kitchen, but because I was ravenous after a long bike ride and it was past my normal dinner time, I grabbed a can of corn from the cupboard, a pound of lean ground turkey from the fridge and some parmesan cheese to add a sprinkling of wickedness.

While the turkey was browning, I added sea salt, cracked pepper and garlic powder and diced the zucchini, adding it to the seasoned turkey. I next added the can of corn, with liquid. Cooked it all, stirring occasionally until the zucchini looked tender and the liquid evaporated. I added enough shredded parmesan cheese to bring the total W.W. value to 30. My portion was 1/3 of the total, or 10 Points.

My son said it looked a little bit like dog food but tasted good… and that he’d always wanted to try dog food.
