Meatless Zucchini Balls


2-3 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
4-5 Tbsp olive oil

Grate zucchinis over a cheese cloth or paper towel  

Squeeze water out of it.  When you think you have squeezed all the water out, there is probably more, so keep squeezing.  You can save this zucchini water for another dish that you plan to make in the next coupe of days.  It would go well in soups, sauces, rice, or for deglazing the pan.  

What you are left with should look like this, but drier.  I should have squeezed mine more.  

Add the rest of the ingredients except the oil and mix well.

Finally, show your artistic abilities and make round and even zucchini balls.

Fry them in oil.

Turn them over and fry the other side very gently so they don't fall apart like mine.

Add tomato sauce and stir together.

Serve hot.  This alone could be an appetizer dish, or make it a full meal by serving over pasta.
