Do you want to clear a room? Mention you have extra zucchini. It seems that everyone who grows it always has extra to give away. That's why Lancaster, Pa., residents Tom and Ruth Roy (both avid holiday creators) proclaimed an official day in honor of this prolific producer: National Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor's Porch Night, August 8.

Zucchini can be found year-round in any grocery. It's low in calories, high in fiber and contains beta-carotene, vitamin C, folic acid, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. For home gardeners, four to six plants will produce enough zucchini to feed a family of four. Here's a basic recipe to help you use that extra zucchini and spare your neighbors from receiving a visit from the zucchini fairies.

Story and recipe by Cindy Kerschner, a food writer in Schnecksville, Pa.
