How to Make Zucchini Parmesan
About 30 years back, zucchini was the least popular in the United States. It was initially referred to as green Italian squash. Today, zucchini is not only extremely popular but is also amongst the favorites of gardeners and consumers.
Apart from its fast-growing nature, the popularity is probably due to its versatility! It can be used in so many dishes.
The word squash which is used to refer to zucchini comes from the Indian languages kuta squash meaning "green thing eaten green”. Although populations of Central and South America are consuming zucchini for thousands of years, Christopher Columbus initially brought seeds to the Mediterranean region and Africa after which the vegetable became popular in these regions too.
