Instructions
  1. Place the chopped zucchini in a saucepan and add about 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat to a simmer and cook about five minutes. Just until barely tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the same saucepan, melt the 2 Tbsp butter over medium low heat. Add the diced onion and cook until translucent, about five minutes.
  3. Add the 2 Tbsp flour and stir about one minute to get the raw flavor out of the flour. Then stir in the whole milk, chicken bouillon,basil, salt and pepper. Bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat then lower the heat to simmer and cook for two minutes until thick and bubbly.Place the zucchini in a lightly buttered 11×7 inch casserole dish and pour the cream sauce evenly over the top.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan Cheese with the softened butter. Sprinkle this over the top of the zucchini mixture.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until hot and bubbly and the topping is a golden brown.
  6. So delicious! And yet another way to enjoy the bountiful of zucchini that graces our gardens!
