Green beans and zucchini with bacon are the peak of a delicious summer evening. You can use canned or frozen beans, but when summer is here, the fresh snapped beans are out of this world.

I also love a lot of butter, and so if you do not, cut the butter in half and only use 1/8 cup instead of 1/4 cup. I like my bacon nice and crispy, but you may like it a little less done. That works too. In other words, feel free to tweak this recipe to your liking.

Can I Use Less Zucchini in Green Beans and Zucchini with Bacon?

Sure. Instead of using 2 cups of beans and 2 cups of zucchini you can always use 2 cups beans and 1 cup of zucchini.

It is that time of year when zucchini is ready and oh so plentiful. I really love my zucchini plants that are loaded with zucchinis. I have come across such a variety of zucchini recipes that it is hard to believe that we are eating the same plant.
