Zucchini Hash Brown's - Side Dish

Zucchini Side Dish

(This is an extremely delicious side dish.  It can be made ahead of time and reheated for company!)


3 tbsp. olive oil

6 cloves of garlic, minced

½ cup of chopped onion

4 cups of shredded zucchini (1 large zucchini)

½ cup cream

4 ounces of cream cheese, cut up

¼ cup fresh chopped basil

¼ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


Microwave the zucchini for 4 minutes on power level 8.  Place in a colander and press with a potato masher to squeeze out the excess liquid.

Heat the oil in a large pot. 

Sauté’ the garlic and onion in the oil until transparent and slightly browned.

Add the strained zucchini, and cook for about 7 minutes.

Pour the cream into the pot.

Stir in the cream cheese until melted.

Mix in the basil, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
