I'm a little embarrassed to write this but... I love zucchini!
I always thought that it was a cucumber featured in this famous scene, but according to Spinal Tap A to Zed it is most certainly a zucchini... because "A cucumber is all pimply."
I also discovered on a site called Witchipedia (who knew that such things existed) that "zucchini resonates with earth energy" and "is feminine in nature." Zucchini is apparently used in "spells for increase and fertility" because of it's prolific nature. So you might want to be careful next time you serve this dish at a dinner party.
What other vegetable do you know that can be used as "Trouser Helper" while resonating with feminine earth energy? Some might call it the perfect food!
When it is not doubling as trouser make up or being carved into fertility charms by Wiccans zucchini also makes a wonderful addition to any summer meal.
Sauteed Italian Style Zucchini
3 cloves garlic
fresh herbs (or if none are available dried will work fine... you can either use a combination of basil and oregano or just use a sprinkle of Italian seasoning)
Saute diced onion and minced garlic in olive oil until soft. Add the zucchini and cook until it is just tender. Stir in the herbs (I like to use basil and oregano from my garden) and cook until just wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
