If you can find an heirloom zucchini called Costata Romanesca, you're in for a treat. It's a delicious, dense zucchini distinguished from the usual garden variety by raised ribs that run the length of its body. When cut crosswise, it makes a pretty scalloped slice. Otherwise, use standard zucchini. A bright parsley-caper sauce adds a fresh, slightly salty note to this simple steamed vegetable.
I actually grill the veggies and then toss them in the parsley mix just before serving. It is easy to change up the veggies a bit too - I add some onion slices and mushrooms. Peppers would be good too.
